The film-maker Hannah Rothschild describes her great aunt Pannonica Rothschild as "the one who got away" from the weight of responsibility attached to the family name. She moved from war-torn France and set up home in New York in the early 1950s, where she soon became patron and friend to bebop greats like Charlie Parker (who died in her hotel room) and Thelonious Monk (whom she nursed until his death).
