Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[to Rex Reed's observation, "I understand you were a great fan of Tyrone Power"] Who told you that? He died on the set of Solomon and Sheba (1959). But he was just someone I knew. One knew lots of people. Every film is like an ocean voyage, a transatlantic crossing. You swear you will meet each other again. But you never do. See more »


After being convinced by a woman he had taken up with, Sanders sold his beloved house in Majorca, Spain. Soon afterward he checked into a hotel in Barcelona, and two days later his body was discovered next to five empty tubes of Nembutal. See more »


Often played the "cad" in his films, such as Jack Favell in Rebecca (1940) See more »
