Herbert Marshall ACTOR


Herbert Marshall was born on May 23rd, 1890 in London in the United Kingdom with the birth name Herbert Brough Falcon Marshall, born to Percy F. Marshall and Ethel May Turner.  Originally, he had the intention of pursuing a career in accounting and received all the necessary schooling to do so at St. Mary's College, however he soon decided that he would prefer to work as an actor.
Prior to pursuing his goal in entertainment, he served during World War I and suffered an injury losing his leg, however, he received a wooden leg and did not let this impact his goals to pursue a career as an actor.
He began working as a stage performer and gained twenty years of experience in London before he even attempted to go the route of films.  His British accent was loved on the screen and he was never type cast to one specific type of character.
By the age of forty he finally made the move to working on American films with his first role being in, "The Letter" (1929).  He soon followed with more prominent roles in such films as, "Trouble in Paradise" (1932), "Blonde Venus" (1932) starring Marlene Dietrich and Cary Grant, Dickie Moore, Clarence Muse, Sterling Holloway, Hattie McDaniel, Dennis O'Keefe, Kent Taylor, Gene Morgan, Robert Emmett O'Connor and Sidney Toler, "Foreign Correspondent" (1940) co-starring Joel McCrea, Laraine Day, George Sanders, Albert Bassermann, Robert Benchley and Edmund Gwenn, "The Little Foxes" (1941), "Duel in the Sun" (1946) starring Jennifer Jones, Joseph Cotten, Gregory Peck, Lillian Gish, Lionel Barrymore, Charles Bickford, Otto Kruger, Dan White, Lane Chandler, Harry Carey, Sidney Blackmer, Walter Huston, Butterfly McQueen and Joan Tetzel, "The Razor's Edge" (1946), "Riders to the Stars" (1954), "Gog" (1954) and "The Fly" (1958).
Along with his many years of stage experience and work on a number of films he also worked as a television actor on such series as, "Playhouse 90" (1957), "The Loretta Young Show" (1957), "Lux Video Theatre" (1954-1956), "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" (1957-1958), "77 Sunset Strip" (1958) and "Zane Grey Theatre" (1961).
Throughout his lifetime he married a total of five times.  His first marriage was to Mollie Maitland in 1915 but by 1928 this marriage had come to an end.  His second wife was Edna Best whom he wed in 1928 and after having one child this marriage came to an end in 1940.  His third time to marry was in 1940 to Elizabeth Roberta Lee Russell and they also had one child together and remained married until 1947.  With three unsuccessful marriages, he still chose to wed again for a fourth time to Boots Mallory in 1947 and they were together until she passed away in 1958.  He then married his fifth and final wife Dee Anne Kahmann in 1960 and they were together until he passed away on January 22nd, 1966 in Beverly Hills, California after suffering from a heart attack.  His remains are located at the Chapel of the Pines Crematory in Los Angeles, California.
