Tall, hawk-nosed leading man Gavin Gordon was one of many stage actors drafted for the movies in the first years of sound. Stardom seemed within his grasp when he was cast opposite Greta Garbo in her second talkie, Romance (1930). Unfortunately, though his voice was clear and resonant, Gordon came off as stiff and soulless as a romantic lead. He would fare better in such secondary parts as the sanctimonious missionary fiancé of Barbara Stanwyck in The Bitter Tea of General Yen (1933), and the imperious Lord Byron in Bride of Frankenstein (1935). During the 1950s, Gavin Gordon was most active at Paramount Pictures, playing small character roles in such films as White Christmas (1954), Knock on Wood (1954) and The Ten Commandments (1955).

Lt. Anderson says: There'll be a man patrolling the grounds all night, Miss Van Gorder.

Cornelia Van Gorder says: Oh, thank you.

Dr. Malcolm Wells says: and nobody inside, Andy?

Lt. Anderson says: Why should there be?

Dr. Malcolm Wells says: Well, how do you know but what the "Bat" is hiding somewhere inside the house?

Lt. Anderson says: I'm quite sure he isn't in the house, Doctor. Not now.
