The Lyons Share

Bebe Daniels and her husband actor Ben Lyon were aboard the R.M.S. Queen Mary on this day in 1954. Daniels early career included an ongoing role as Harold Llyod's leading lady in silent films such as Billy Blazes, Esq. and Nothing But Trouble. Ben Lyon's best known feature film role was alongside Jean Harlow in the 1930 film, Hell's Angels.

The BBC show, Life with the Lyons, featuring the couple and their children, ran on radio and then television from 1950 to 1960.

The couple are shown here posing for photographers as the ship arrived in Southampton.
