She appeared as Maggie Hobson in the David Lean film version of Hobson's Choice (1954) with John Mills and Charles Laughton, set in Salford. Laughton allegedly didn't like de Banzie because she wasn't getting 'her part right'. De Banzie was also upstaging Laughton who was, by all accounts, a notorious upstager himself.
