Looks like Errol Flynn's mustache....

 

Funny you should say that.  Victor Francen was the villain in Errol Flynn's "San Antonio."

It is indeed Victor Francen, so good andevil in "The Beast with Five Fingers"

Mongo

I think that Victor Francen's performance as Grodek in The Mask of Dimitrios is one of the great performances in one scene in movie history.

ROSALIND RUSSELL  (1907 - 1976)

She refused to be placed in the Best Supporting Actress category when Columbia Pictures wanted to promote her for an Academy Award nomination for her role in "Picnic" (1955). Many felt she would have won had she cooperated.

A true story from old Hollywood newspaper files:

In the early days of William Boyd’s career, in the 1920s, he played a handsome young leading man, before he became a cowboy star. Another older Broadway actor named William Boyd started making movies back in the 1930s too, and they both used the same name. However, the older Boyd kept getting arrested for public drunkenness, and one time the younger William Boyd’s photos turned up in newspapers, in error, as “the” William Boyd who had been arrested for public drunkenness.

 

The younger Boyd we all know threatened a lawsuit because of the error and was able to testify before a judge, causing the judge to issue an order that the drunken Boyd always be henceforth identified in movie credits as William “Stage” Boyd, since he had been a Broadway actor.

 

So that is why we see the William “Stage” Boyd’s name in credits in movies that were made in the later 1930s.

And yet ANOTHER interesting old story about  William Boyd...

 

Unlike most other areas of the country, Ironically in Brooklyn NY, the locals actually pronounced his name: "William Bird"!

 

(...betcha NOBODY knew THAT around here, now DID ya???!!!...and yep, if you're wonderin', those SAME folks would ALSO call the guy who played Messala in the '59 remake of BEN HUR, yep, you guessed it: "Stephen Bird")   ;)

Hi Joe, that photo of Maria Montez, not the spitting image of Ann Sheridan, but I think there's a little resemblance, especially in the upper part of the face
