Margaret Kelly
Demanding dancer who formed the world-famous Bluebell Girls, survived internment and saved her husband from the Nazis. From The Times

Kelly set exacting standards, rejecting any candidate who was not both classically trained and tall. “The most important thing was to pick girls with long legs,” she later explained.
