Actor | Soundtrack
Wife Bella was niece of actor Boris Thomashefsky and cousin of classical conductor Michael Tilson Thomas.
[on Robert Donat's performance in Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1939)] The most magnificent performance I've ever seen on any screen. Not a false motion - not a wasted gesture. He is the greatest actor we have today.
Known for his complete transformations into the roles he played (often changing his voice and appearence)
