Summer Under the Stars ~ Herbert Marshall

Herbert Marshall, WWI Veteran lost a leg during the Great War for King and country then came home to hold his own, playing leading man opposite some of Classic Hollywood’s greatest actresses. He duked it out with Barbara Stanwyck in Breakfast for Two (1937). Appeared as Deanna Durbin’s pretend father in the multi-nominated (4) film Mad About Music (1938). Almost survived that conniving Bette Davis, (if only she had given him his pills…)in the nine category nominated film The Little Foxes (1941) and in the 1950’s and 1960’s shared the screen with some of the top box office draws of their time Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh in The Black Shield of Falworth in 1954 and Doris Day in Midnight Lace(1960). Great job Herbert and many thanks for your military service and sacrifice!
