Herbert Marshall

Shop by the Stars aisle featuring Herbert Marshall (1890-1966) vintage movie cards, still photos, ephemera, and other collectibles.

London born leading man and, later on, character actor, Marshall took to the stage in 1911 (possibly 1909) with his biggest early success coming in Brewster's Millions in London, 1913. The Great War interrupted Marshall's career and sniper fire took his leg, which was amputated above the knee after several operations. Herbert Marshall worked the rest of his career on a wooden leg. In the 1920s he became a theatrical star in London and New York, and he made his film debut at home in Mumsie (1927) opposite American film star Pauline Frederick. He next appeared in The Letter (1929) beginning a long tradition of playing characters either written or inspired by W. Somerset Maugham ... including a different role in the 1940 remake of The Letter. Appearing in over seventy features, Marshall was star or leading man in early titles such as Alfred Hitchcock's Murder! (1930), Ernst Lubitsch's Trouble in Paradise (1932), Blonde Venus (1932) as Dietrich's husband, Maugham's The Painted Veil (1934) as Garbo's husband, opposite Margaret Sullavan in The Good Fairy (1935) and opposite Bette Davis in The Little Foxes (1941), both for director William Wyler. Later popular titles typically featuring Marshall in support include Hitchcock's Foreign Correspondent (1940), Maugham-based The Moon and Sixpence (1942), The Enchanted Cottage (1945), as Maugham in Maugham's The Razor's Edge (1946), and, a little later still, horror cult classic The Fly (1958). A fine actor, who adds class to any movie, a couple of less familiar titles that I like are I Was a Spy (1933) and Accent on Youth (1935).
