star of the month "George Brent"
Star of the Month is back . This month featuring another star i had a crush .George Brent
As an actor, Brent featured in many "women’s movies", where most of the time all that could be seen of George was the back of his neck, the screen more focused on whom he was kissing - not bad work if you can get it and it affords you a nice boat. Some of the women kissed by Brent included Kay Francis, Barbara Stanwyck, Myrna Loy, Ann Sheridan and Bette Davis, with whom he appeared in 11 movies including Jezebel (1938) and Dark Victory (1939).
One of my favorite Brent movie is "The Rain Came"
Brent was a womaniser in Hollywood, and had a lengthy relationship with his co-star Bette Davis. He was married four times including three marriages to actresses - Ruth Chatterton (1932-1934), Constance Worth (1937) and Ann Sheridan (1942-1943). Chatterton and Sheridan were both fellow Warners Brothers players. His final marriage was to Janet Michaels, a former model and dress designer. They were married for twenty-seven years until her death in 1974. They had two children together, a son and a daughter.
George Brent has two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, for his contributions to Motion Pictures at 1709 Vine St, and for his contributions to Television at 1614 Vine St.
