Ronald Colman 125 -- February 9, 2016


Happy 125th birthday to actor Ronald Colman, who was born on 09-February-1891.  I often tell people that I would be happy to borrow his wonderful voice. 

He served in the London Scottish Regiment in World War One until he was seriously wounded in 1915.  Claude Rains, Herbert Marshall, Cedric Hardwicke and Basil Rathbone also served in the London Scottish. 

He appeared on the stage in Britain and America, and made his first movie in 1923.  He was good in silents, but his voice made him even better in talkies.

I love many of his movies, including Bulldog Drummond, Bulldog Drummond Strikes Back, The Prisoner of Zenda and A Tale of Two Cities.
