David Manners

Highest Rated: 100% The Miracle Woman (1931)

Lowest Rated: 60% A Bill of Divorcement (1932)

Birthday: Apr 30, 1900

Birthplace: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

This slim, handsome boyish juvenile of the 1930s provided able support for such leading ladies as Loretta Young, Katharine Hepburn, Barbara Stanwyck and Constance Bennett. The Canadian-born Manners studied at the Theater Guild in New York in the late 1920s, and was drafted by Tiffany Productions in 1930 to make his film debut in the screen version of the bitter WWI drama "Journey's End." Directed by James Whale and starring Colin Clive (who had played in the stage version), it was a fortuitous debut. Manners made quite an impression as the idealistic young lieutenant who is forced to take his men out on a suicidal raid and is himself mortally wounded. His death scene was generally acclaimed to be a high point of the film.
