MIA Actors and Actresses

Recommended Posts

Phillips Holmes comes to mind as he started with Paramount with much promise. He was handsome and brooding, the forerunner of Montgomery Clift. He starred in "An American Tragedy" the first version later filmed as "A Place In The Sun". He starred opposite many of the Paramount cuties of the early 1930's. Then he switched gears moving to MGM. His roles became smaller and more insignificant till finally MGM dumped him. There were a few more roles for lesser studios and he acted in a few plays before joining the Royal Canadian Air Force and was tragically killed in a mid air collision. I wondered why he fell from grace when he had such great looks and acting skills.

This one isn't from Classic Hollywood, but it's a tragedy along the lines of Maggie McNamara. Jonathan Brandis was a teenage heartthrob who was best known for his role on SeaQuest DSV. After the series was cancelled, the roles were few and far between, and he suffered from depression. Brandis committed suicide on November 12th, 2003.
