This set of pages is dedicated to the actors who played only one time, in a second lead role or had a large role as the villain, in a Tyrone Power film. Some of these actors were often lead actors in other Hollywood films. Others were usually character actors.

pictured at left, Tyrone Power, Henry Fonda, and Henry Hull in a scene from Jesse James.

The first three actors listed below appeared in The Sun Also Rises. All of them played major characters of fairly equal importance in the movie; thus, they are included in this "second lead" page, rather than the "supporting actor" pages.

When one thinks of "swashbuckler", two of the names that would come quickly to mind are Errol Flynn and Tyrone Power. Errol Flynn was to Warner Brothers what Ty was to 20th Century-Fox. Flynn played a variety of roles, yet he is most remembered for his romantic adventure films, like Captain Blood , The Adventures of Robin Hood, and The Sea Hawk. What a delight it would have been to see these two swashbucklers dueling it out, yet this was not to be. The Sun Also Rises just wasn't that type of film. Even so, these two screen greats created memorable characters in The Sun Also Rises , and it is fortunate for fans that it was made. Ty would die from a heart attack about one year after the movie was released, and Errol Flynn only eleven months after Ty's death, also from a heart attack. Flynn's last movie, Cuban Rebel Girls, was released just a couple months after his death. Flynn was married three times. He and Lili Damita were married from 1935-1942, and they had one child. He married Nora Eddington in 1943. They had two daughters but were divorced in 1948. He married Patrice Wymore in 1950, and they were married until his death on October 14, 1959. They had one child.
