Happy Birthday John Cromwell (1887 - 1979)...a magnificent director
Happy Birthday to John Cromwell, one of the greatest directors that ever lived. Just let me read off some of his films that he made during his 30 year tenure: Of Human Bondage (1934), The Prisoner of Zenda (1937), Made For Each Other (1939), In Name Only (1939), Since You Went Away (1944), The Enchanted Cottage (1945), Dead Reckoning (1947), and his last film in 1961 called A Matter Of Morals. He worked with some of the biggest stars in Hollywood: Carole Lombard, Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, Irene Dunne, Bette Davis, Ronald Colman, and Claudette Colbert. Happy Birthday Mr. Cromwell.
