  • A Broadway leading man since his 1925 debut in Mrs. Partridge Presents, suave leading-man John Emery became a favorite co-star of stage great Katherine Cornell, with whom he appeared in The Barretts of Wimpole Street, Saint Joan and The Constant Wife. After an isolated film appearance in 1937, Emery launched his Hollywood career as a charming murderer in 1941's Here Comes Mr. Jordan. He was a handsome if not altogether trustworthy presence in such films as Spellbound (1946) and The Woman in White (1948), and was top-billed in Let's Live Again (1948) and The Gay Intruders (1948). Despite his frequent on-screen underhandedness, Actors Equity trusted Emery enough to elect him to that union's council for several terms. John Emery was at one time married to Tallulah Bankhead.
