Highest Rated: 100% The Bitter Tea of General Yen (1933)

Lowest Rated: 60% Night Monster (1942)

Birthday: Jan 17, 1897

Birthplace: Copenhagen, Denmark

Dashing, smooth leading man of late silent films and the first decade of talkies, in the USA from 1927. Tall and often mustachioed, Asther proved a capable and attractive romantic lead opposite Greta Garbo in "The Single Standard" (1929) and Barbara Stanwyck in "The Bitter Tea of General Yen" (1933). He continued playing supporting roles into the 1940s.
