      Franchot Tone

      Franchot Tone

      Highest Rated: 100% The Lives of a Bengal Lancer (1935)

      Lowest Rated: 20% Today We Live (1933)

      Birthday: Feb 27, 1905

      Birthplace: Niagara Falls, New York, USA

      Blue-blood, stage-trained actor who made his film debut in 1932. Owing to his upper-class poise and polish, Tone was pigeonholed as a tuxedoed, cafe society sophisticate in a host of mostly MGM comedies and dramas. By 1937 the tall, handsome and sensitive actor was one of Hollywood's most prominent leading men, receiving recognition for his roles in "Mutiny on the Bounty" (1935), "The Lives of a Bengal Lancer" (1935) and "Three Comrades" (1938). Too often, though, he found himself stifled in standardized romantic leads, playing consort to dynamic star actresses, especially his then-wife Joan Crawford.
