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.

Tidbit
During the years that some Hollywood stars were going off to serve in World War II (including Tyrone Power, Henry Fonda, James Stewart, Clark Gable, etc.), there was a shortage of actors who had been the leading men. Actors such as Gregory Peck and Dana Andrews, among others, helped fill the gap caused by the absence of these top stars who were serving in the military. Andrews's portrayal of Det. Lt. Mark McPherson in 1944's Laura was very good, and it gave him his first really great starring role. In his fifty years in films, Dana Andrews made about 75 movies, some starring roles and others supporting roles. Dana Andrews was married to Janet Murray from December 31, 1932, until her death in 1935. They had one child. His marriage to Mary Todd lasted from November 17, 1939, until his death on December 17, 1992. They had three children.

Other Movies

The Swiss Family Robinson (1940)

Tidbit
Freddie Bartholomew was one of the most popular child stars in film history, and, for a time, was one of the top box-office stars. For that reason, though he was in Lloyd's of London a relatively short period of time as the young Jonathan Blake (Ty's character as a child), he received top billing. (This was Ty's first movie with a substantial part, and, though the story was about his character, he was fourth billed, behind Madeleine Carroll and Guy Standing). As Bartholomew grew up, his cute looks faded, his stardom slipped, and, by the time he was twenty, his film career was over. He did return in 1951 for a supporting role in Benny the Dip.

Tidbit
George Brent was a very good actor who was under contract to Warner Brothers for about twenty years (loaned to 20th Century Fox for The Rains Came). His acting style was sophisticated and restrained. He worked steadily, usually in starring and some supporting roles, but he was overshadowed at his home studio by such actors as James Cagney and Humphrey Bogart, who were much more showy in their acting styles. By 1956, Brent's career had slowed down considerably, and he retired from the screen. He did return in 1978, for a supporting role in Born Again, a film about Watergate figure Charles Colson's born- again Christian conversion. Brent was married and divorced three times: to Ruth Chatterton (1932-1934); to Constance Worth (1937-1937); and to Ann Sheridan (1942-1943).
