      George Brent

      George Brent

      Highest Rated: 100% Baby Face (1933)

      Lowest Rated: 60% Tomorrow Is Forever (1946)

      Birthday: Mar 15, 1904

      Birthplace: Shannonsbridge, County Dublin, Ireland

      Gentlemanly Broadway lead who made his screen debut in "Under Suspicion" (1930). Initially a slightly tough talking New York type, Brent proved an effective romantic foil to a wide variety of dominant female stars of the 1930s and 40s, most notably at Warner Brothers, where he was tenured from 1932 to 1942. Capable of playing the strong but silent type, or the urbane and cynical, Brent often spent his screen time desiring his leading lady or being pursued by her. His playing was invariably professional and amiable if not dynamic or idiosyncratic, and so he proved a natural in "women's films" in which the focus was securely on a more galvanizing female actor who was a bigger star. Among his female paramours over the years were Bebe Daniels ("42nd Street," 1933), Greta Garbo ("The Painted Veil," 1934), Ginger Rogers ("In Person," 1935), Myrna Loy ("The Rains Came," 1939), Barbara Stanwyck ("My Reputation," 1946), and Claudette Colbert ("Bride for Sale," 1949).
