Classic crush profile: Herbert Marshall

Okay we know I lust after the dead actor, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.  Well here is another one.  I don’t lust him but he’s so cute.  I love his English accent and blase manner.   Herbert Marshall was a sought-out leading man in the 1930s starring with such leading ladies like Kay Francis, Marlene Dietrich, Bette Davis, Claudette Colbert and Margaret Sullavan.  In the 40s he became a character actor but still in very memorable classics.

This video from The Good Fairy centers around Margaret Sullavan, a fantastic luminious yet almost-forgotten  actress but I love this film and Marshall is wonderful in it. 

Here he is with Kay Francis in Trouble in Paradise. Charles Ruggles and Edward Everett Horton are so cute.
