Next up is Franchot Tone, a classically trained actor with a very long career (1932-1938).
He is responsible for the establishment of the Best Supporting Actor/Actress categories in the Academy Awards, due to his supporting performance (and subsequent Best Actor nomination) in "Mutiny on the Bounty" (1935). He was also incidentally married to Joan Crawford from 1935-1939 (I was hoping I could do a "Married to Crawford" thread, but the rest of her husbands weren't major actors).


Tone with the older woman is from 1932; two pictures with the beautiful Loretta Young for 1933's "Midnight Mary"; also for "Midnight Mary" is the one with Tone, Andy Devine, and Martha Sleeper; the one with the fantastic shadows (and horizontal blinds) is a portrait shot by Hurrell; and finally, in the snazzy sportcoat, with Bette Davis for 1936's "Dangerous".

I found this almost-exact copy of the above photo of Brigitte Helm, or does Helm's photo copy this one of Evelyn Brent? Or complete coincidence, since one is German and the other is American?

I was so floored when I saw these photos of German actress Hertha Thiele - having never heard of her, I honestly had to check imdb to make sure they weren't from the 1960's!! The one in the white collared shirt looks like Twiggy...thirty years before Twiggy. Just fantastic!

I really like the second Brigitte Helm pic

HQ's of Carole Lombard in "My Man Godfrey" (with William Powell), " No Man of Her Own" (with Clark Gable), "Twentieth Century", and a posed shot.
