guess who?

He was almost blind in one eye due to injury received in a gas attack during WWI.

He never attended a premiere.

In addition to memorizing his lines for a movie, he memorized the entire script.

He was married six times.

Before becoming a famous actor, he was a teacher at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. One of his students was Laurence Olivier.

Looks kinda like Claude Raines.

"If I were a woman, and I were not around, I should be in love with (him). But what a fool I am talking to a beautiful woman about another man."

Claude Raines is correct! I still have a hard time reconciling that the same person played the bad guy in Robin Hood and the mostly good guy in Casablanca.

Not to mention being slightly insane in "The Invisible Man," although obviously that's not where I recognized him from.
