[on his ex-wife, Joan Crawford] "She`s like that old joke about Philadelphia: First prize, 4 years with Joan. Second prize, 8 years with her."


Ex-brother-in-law of Hal Le Sueur.


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.
