Benita Hume (14 October 1906 – 1 November 1967) was an English film actress. She appeared in 44 films between 1925 and 1955.

Life and career

She was married to actor Ronald Colman from 1938 to his death in 1958; they were the parents of a daughter, Juliet. She starred with Colman in both versions of the situation comedy The Halls of Ivy, an NBC Radio programme (1949–1952) and a CBS Television show (1954–1955). She also made occasional guest appearances with her husband on The Jack Benny Show on radio, where the Colmans were portrayed as Benny's long-suffering next-door neighbours, a role they reprised once on his television show. She was also married to actor George Sanders from 1959 to her death in 1967.


George Sanders originally was signed to play Sheridan Whiteside in the musical Sherry!, but when Hume became terminally ill with cancer, he withdrew from the project. Hume died in Egerton, Lancashire from bone cancer at the age of 61.
