Who can be romantically linked to Tyrone Power...and how closely?

(e.g. Tyrone Power)

(e.g. Kevin Bacon)

 

He turned down Burt Lancaster`s role in From Here to Eternity (1953).

 

The novel "Quicksilver" by Fitzroy Davis chronicles, in fictional form, a tour of "Romeo & Juliet" with Katharine Cornell that Power was with in the 1930s before going to Hollywood. Others in the cast included at various times Orson Welles, Brian Aherne and Basil Rathbone. All the names have been changed but many of the stories in the book did actually happen. When Brian Aherne joined the cast, Orson Welles was demoted, taking over Power's role, and Power moved into a smaller one. This is included in the book. It was a best-seller, written in 1942 after many of the actors had Hollywood success, and the story goes that Cornell tried to buy up all of the copies. Given that Davis knew these actors' fates by the time he wrote the book, it's easier to figure out who was who, though it appears the author did mix various traits among the characters in order to make the actors less recognizable.

 

"I`ve done an awful lot of stuff that`s a monument to public patience."

 

The secret of charm is bullshit.

iltepjr - Not sure how it`s possible for a person to grieve for someone who`s been dead for 50 years but I do. I grieve for his wife and their son. He could have been the greatest had he lived. He was yet an untapped source. (6 years ago)
