The story of Tyrone Power would not be complete without including information about Darryl F. Zanuck, the man who gave him his big break in movies and who carefully nurtured his top male star's career for so many years. Zanuck was the genius behind the golden years of Twentieth Century-Fox. He was the the head of the studio; produced many films; and wrote or co-wrote some of the scripts, one of which was "Yank in the R.A.F." (under the pseudonym, Melville Crossman). He had a keen sense of knowing what moviegoers would like -- a great story -- and he was able to procure hundreds of wonderful scripts for his studio.

Much has been written about Darryl F. Zanuck, which talks flatteringly of his genius as a movie mogul and unflatteringly about his personal life. However, I found an article from a February 1948 issue of Coronet magazine, which gives keen insights into the head of 20th Century-Fox -- insights which I've found nowhere else. It has been reprinted below -- and on the next few pages -- to give you a unique perspective on this man who played such an important part in Ty's career.
