Style Icon X: George Brent

Bette Davis' favourite male lead was George Brent (1899-1979). Brent had been born in Ireland and went to America during the difficult period leading to Irish independence. From 1930, he starred in a host of films, including thirteen with Bette Davis, from Front Page Woman (1935) to Jezebel (1938) and The Great Lie (1941). His last film, after a long absence from the big screen, was in Born Again in 1978. One of his four wives was Ann Sheridan, featured below in this blog. In this picture he is with Bette Davis.
