A Handsome Actor and Leading Man
- Sherry R Gillis
I'm surprised nobody has written a word about John Boles, who starred in a number of Pre-Code and interesting films during the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s - 57 in all. He starred opposite Barbara Stanwyck in Stella Dallas (1937), with Irene Dunne in Back Street (1932), among many other notable performances. Boles was a big hit in silent films, but was one of the stars that did really well when talkies started. He had a beautiful tenor voice and could both act and sing in a variety of films. Perhaps Boles did not attract as much attention to himself because he was more of a serious actor and in his personal life he was married to the same woman for 50 years, until the day he died. I've always liked John Boles and the roles I've seen him play in so many films of the 30s and 40s, so I'm giving him five stars for being a stand up guy.
