    At the time of the New Empire Review newsreel, Renée Houston was famous in variety theatre, films, on BBC radio and commercial radio. A television career would soon begin.

    Her career and interesting life are the subject of a new biography called:
    Renée Houston: Spirit of the Irresistibles.
