Jack Buchanan

Shop by the Stars aisle featuring Jack Buchanan (1891-1957) vintage movie cards, still photos, ephemera, and other collectibles. Born in Scotland, Buchanan made his stage debut in 1912 and was a popular actor, singer, and dancer on stage and screen for the rest of his life. His screen debut came in 1917, though the busiest part of his movie career spanned from 1928-40, the period mostly covered by the movie cards picturing him here. Buchanan starred opposite Jeanette MacDonald for Paramount in Monte Carlo (1930), but most of his movies during this period were British releases such as Brewster's Millions (1935), Larceny Street (1937), and Break the News (1938). After an absence of thirteen years in the movies Buchanan appeared in support of Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse in The Band Wagon (1953), before returning to England to appear in his final three films, As Long as They're Happy, Josephine and Men, and The French, They Are a Funny Race (all 1955).
