Greta Gynt (15 November 1916 – 2 April 2000), born Margrethe Woxholt, was a Norwegian singer, dancer and actress.
She is remembered for her starring roles in the British classic films The Dark Eyes of London, Mr.
Emmanuel, Take My Life, Dear Murderer and The Ringer.She played lead roles in minor British films in the 1930s and early 40s, and by the late 40s she appeared in major films.
The Rank Organisation tried to market her as the British Jean Harlow.
She also attempted an unsuccessful career in the US, absurdly miscast in MGM's Soldiers Three as a platinum blonde with made-up bosom, and went back to Britain afterwards.
Her most famous films are the 1939 Bela Lugosi film The Dark Eyes of London as the tough heroine, heroic as an underground leader in Tomorrow We Live, touching as Jewish Elsie Silver in Mr.
Emmanuel (1944), forceful as loyal wife proving her husband's innocence in the thriller Take My Life, a promiscuous murderess in Dear Murderer, both in 1947, and as a nightclub singer singing "The Shady Lady Spiv" in Easy Money (1948).
