"Binnie" Barnes, 1903–1998 (English-American actress)

* Binnie Barnes's career in films spanned fifty years, from 1923 to 1973. She appeared most notably in The Private Life of Henry VIII (1933) as Katherine Howard, Henry's fifth wife. Later her career continued in Hollywood. She married American film producer Mike Frankovich, a Roman Catholic, for whom she converted to Catholicism, and later became a naturalized United States citizen. The couple adopted three children. Barnes died on 27 July 1998, aged 95, in Beverly Hills, California.

BIRTH DATA: Gertrude Maud Barnes, 25 March 1903, 23:59 (11:59pm) GMT (+0), London, England (51n30, 0w10). ASC: 4 Sagittarius. RR: A (from memory or news report).

SOURCE: Sy Scholfield quotes from "The Literary Digest," Volume 123, Issues 1-13 (April 1937), p. 19: "Binnie Barnes was born at midnight between March 25-26, so she compromises by celebrating with a party at midnight between the two days."

Full birth name from England and Wales Birth Registration Index. Her birth was registered in the June quarter of 1903 at Islington, London.

Wikipedia has 25 May 1903 (no source), but her obituary in The Times (London, 1 August 1998, p. 21), states "Gertrude Maud Barnes" was born on "March 25, 1903."

U.S. Social Security Death Index gives "Binnie Frankovich" born "March 25, 1903" who died "July 27, 1998."
