Dame Wendy said she had tried to make only films that were ''rather special and have stature,'' and to play only roles that were ''undull.
She was also noted for carefully shaping and defining memorable characters. Basil Rathbone, who starred with her in the play ''The Heiress,'' an adaptation of Henry James's ''Washington Square,'' said he had never rehearsed with any performer who worked with such concentration, adding, ''She shuts everything else out in a most absolute way.
Hiller made her final West End performance in the title role in Driving Miss Daisy Apollo, At Shaw's insistence, she starred as Eliza Doolittle in the film Pygmalion with Leslie Howard as Professor Higgins.
This performance earned Hiller her first Oscar nomination, a first for a British actress in a British film, and became one of her best remembered roles.
She was also the first actress to utter the word "bloody" in a British film, when Eliza utters the line "Not bloody likely, I'm going in a taxi!
She followed up this success with another Shaw adaptation, Major Barbara with Rex Harrison and Robert Morley. Powell and Pressburger signed her for The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp , but her second pregnancy led to Deborah Kerr being cast instead.
Determined to work with Hiller, the film makers later cast her with Roger Livesey again for I Know Where I'm Going!
Despite her early film success and offers from Hollywood, she returned to the stage full-time after and only occasionally accepted film roles.
With her return to film in the s, she portrayed an abused colonial wife in Carol Reed 's Outcast of the Islands , but had already transitioned into mature, supporting roles with Sailor of the King and a memorable victim of the Mau Mau uprising in Something of Value She won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in for the film Separate Tables , as a lonely hotel manager and mistress of Burt Lancaster.
She remained uncompromising in her indifference to film stardom, as evidenced by her surprising reaction to her Oscar win: "Never mind the honour, cold hard cash is what it means to me.
She received a third Oscar nomination for her performance as the simple, unrefined, but dignified Lady Alice More, opposite Paul Scofield as Thomas More , in A Man for All Seasons Her role as the grand Russian princess in a huge commercial success, Murder on the Orient Express , won her international acclaim and the Evening Standard British Film Award as Best Actress.
Other notable roles included a Jewish refugee fleeing Nazi Germany with her dying husband in Voyage of the Damned , the formidable London Hospital matron in The Elephant Man and Maggie Smith's emotionally cold and demanding aunt in The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne Hiller made numerous television appearances, in both Britain and the United States.

This performance earned her a BAFTA nomination as Best Actress. And though Gow deserved high praise for his handling of the novel, it was his wife who stole all our hearts with her rustic simplicity and emotional truth.
This ability to express transparent honesty astonished everyone. It was so hard, as one critic observed, not to believe in her.
An actor may harbour heaps of personal sincerity, but unless she can transmit it to us she might as well be without it. What continued to impress the student of acting was the way she went on to interpret - without perhaps ever excelling her role as Tess - everything from Shakespeare, lbsen, Shaw, Synge, Wilde, O'Neill and Henry James to Somerset Maughan, Robert Bolt, Royce Ryton and Alfred Uhry.
Plain women or pretty, queens or flower girls, princesses or imprisoned spinsters, dominant wives or meek daughters.
Hiller had a particular feeling for supposedly unattractive women like Catherine Sloper in The Heiress New York, ; Haymarket, , perhaps because she knew she was no conventional beauty; taking over, in London, from Peggy Ashcroft as Evelyn Daly, the daughter and maid-of-all-work in NC Hunter's Waters Of The Moon Haymarket, ; or in the same play at Chichester 27 years later as the supremely fussy Mrs Whyte, of the expressive knitting needles; or as the deferential Miss Tina in Michael Redgrave's version of The Aspern Papers New York, ; or, 22 years later in the same play at Chichester, as the fierce and ancient Miss Bordereau.
Perhaps two of the most conspicuous surprises of her career came with her icy hauteur as a majestic Queen Mary in Royce Ryton's version of the abdication crisis, Crown Matrimonial Haymarket, ; and 16 years after that as an august, irascible American widow learning to live with her black chauffeur in Alfred Uhry's Pulitzer prize-winning play, Driving Miss Daisy Apollo, On stage, she won accolades for her portrayal of Queen Mary in Crown Matrimonial , a play that chronicles the abdication crisis of Edward VIII.
In Hiller was created a Dame of the British Empire. She continued to appear on stage, screen, and television through the s and gave one of the best performances of her later years as the irritable elderly Southern gentlewoman in a London production of Driving Miss Daisy Print Cite verified Cite.
