Buster Crabbe was actually tested for the Tarzan role in the MGM films - in the company of several other good-looking hunks - too bad, MGM didn't give him a solo screen test.

 

I think Crabbe became a very competent actor in the western genre. His precodes are also fun. He certainly had a long and varied career.

Claude Rains in the 30s on TCM

THE INVISIBLE MAN with Gloria Stuart

STOLEN HOLIDAY with Kay Francis

JUAREZ with Paul Muni

THEY WON’T FORGET with Gloria Dickson

THEY MADE ME A CRIMINAL with John Garfield

HEARTS DIVIDED with Marion Davies

 

Read about Stolen Holiday and it sounds interesting.   I typically enjoy Kay in light hearted comedies \ romantic films so I would love to see her in this drama, especially since her co-star is the fantastic Rains.    I assume she holds her own.

 

BUT tonight is jazz jam night so I'm leaving.    Since the film is a WB production,  I'm hoping TCM will show it again.

Terrific actor, very persuasive, his last film was "Twilight Of Honor" with Richard Chamberlain.

Every now and then, I'll watch an episode of "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour" and be totally "knocked out" - just recently, Gloria Swanson, James MacArthur and Lynn Loring in a dark, dark tale and Vera Miles and Jeffrey Hunter in another dark, dark tale.  

 

Only the first four seasons of Alfred Hitchcock Presents is on Hulu. I think my favorite is the one called "Toby" where Jessica Tandy keeps talking about a baby in the other room, and it is suggested the baby (we don't see it until the very end) is dead. Like you really use your imagination with that story, and Tandy is superb. The ending is a total surprise.

Yes, he worked with Hitch several times. The three episodes of the TV series I highlighted are rare examples where Hitch not only hosted but also directed (between movies). He kept casting John Williams for a reason, leading me to believe Wiliams was a personal favorite of his.

Who could forget John Williams in "Back for Christmas" with Isobel Elsom?

 

I loved John Williams in "Dial M For Murder", too.

 

He originated the role in the famed Broadway production.
