Louis Hayward

Highest Rated: 100% And Then There Were None (1945)

Lowest Rated: 20% Anthony Adverse (1936)

Birthday: Mar 19, 1909

Birthplace: Johannesburg, South Africa

Suavely handsome, often tongue-in-cheek leading man of the 1930s and 40s who began his career with a provincial theater company in England. Hayward came to Hollywood in the mid-30s and quickly established a second-rank level of stardom which lasted until the mid-50s. He more than held his own in a wide variety of films; his light touch with cynical, witty banter suited him well in drawing room comedies and romantic dramas ("The Flame Within" 1935, "The Rage of Paris" 1938, "Dance Girl Dance" 1940), but he regularly appeared in detective films and adventures as well. Often cast as somewhat roguish playboys, Hayward played the leading role in Rene Clair's sterling adaptation of Agatha Christie's mystery "And Then There Were None" (1945) and was fine in dual roles James Whale's stylish version of "The Man in the Iron Mask" (1939).
