Smooth and deliberately-spoken, Herbert Marshall diligently pursued his acting career, at first in Britain but soon in Hollywood, despite the loss of a leg in World War I. He came into films late but made up for it by remaining in star roles until well into his sixties. He was equally elegant in comedy or drama. Marshall was married to actresses Edna Best (1928-1940) and Boots Mallory (1946-1958), the second and fourth of five wives.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Film Stars).
