Herbert Marshall


I caught a Bette Davis movie the other day, "The Letter."  Davis' co-star was Herbert Marshall (1890-1866), an accomplished stage, film and radio actor.  Marshall lost his leg in the first World War and used a wooden leg.  Interestingly, he cultivated a walk meant to hide his disability. The camera, at least in this movie, helped:  he was never shown walking from a distance.
