Shop by the Stars aisle featuring Brian Aherne (1902-1986) vintage movie cards, still photos, ephemera, and other collectibles. Worcestershire, England born Aherne began as a child actor on stage in 1910, and began his screen career in Britain in 1924. He worked with major British actors on stage and screen before coming to America to appear in The Barretts of Wimpole Street on Broadway opposite Katharine Cornell in 1931. Aherne's Hollywood career began opposite Marlene Dietrich in Rouben Mamoulian's The Song of Songs (1933). He received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his performance as Emperor Maxmilian in Juarez (1939). Aherne continued to act in the movies, television, on stage, and radio in a long career that included popular screen performances in Sylvia Scarlett (1935), Merrily We Live (1938), Vigil in the Night (1940), A Night to Remember (1942), My Sister Eileen (1942), and The Locket (1946). His first marriage was to the actress Joan Fontaine, but it was Aherne's second marriage to Eleanor de Liagre Labrot that lasted forty years until the time of his death. Aherne's autobiography was published in 1969, though it's his biography of his friend George Sanders, A Dreadful Man, published 1979, that's more read today.
