Legendary Australian character actress of the British screen, Miss Cannon was without doubt one of the best scene stealing actresses. Her pixie like looks and extraordinary facial expressions made her a true favourite of many a British movie. Without her appearances in many a 'Carry On..' film in the 1960s, her career would have probably been forgotten today. Arguably her most famous performance was as the lonely but happy spinster in Carry On Cruising (1962). The bar scene with Dilys Laye where both their characters get hideously drunk, is as legendary as the movie itself.
