Franchot Tone was one of the original members of the Group Theater (1931-1940), the first acting company in America to bring Stanislavski`s revolutionary acting techniques to America. He was also the first to leave the company for a Hollywood contract. A few years later another company member, Julie Garfinkle (John Garfield), followed Tone to Hollywood. Both movie stars considered their days at the Group the most satisfying years of their lives, and both continued to subsidize the theater`s productions until the Group Theater`s demise.
Following his Sept. 13, 1951, beating at the hands of Tom Neal over the affections of starlet Barbara Payton, Tone was hospitalized for almost a week and needed plastic surgery to repair his badly damaged face.
