Celebrating The 100th Birthday Of Tyrone Power
Tyrone Power, arguably the most handsome of screen actors, was born Tyrone Edmund Power III, on May 5, 1914. He came from a family of famous actors. His grandfather, Tyrone I, was a celebrated actor on the Dublin stage in Ireland. His father, Tyrone II, was a famous Shakespearean and film actor. When Tyrone first started acting, he was known as Tyrone Jr. Upon his father’s death in 1930, he became the Tyrone we know today. After early stage work and appearances as an extra in two films, he signed a contract with 20th Century Fox Studios in 1936. In his first film with them, Girls Dormitory, he walked on in the last scene and had one line of dialog. The studio got so many inquires asking, “who is that man in the last scene” that they immediately cast him in a film with leading lady Loretta Young. It was to be the first of five films they made together. That same year he replaced Don Ameche in Lloyds of London and became a super star over night. At first Fox cast him in romantic comedies with such stars as Sonja Henie, Janet Gaynor and Loretta Young. In 1938, he was cast in the epic In Old Chicago, his first film with Alice Faye. Alexander’s Rag Time Band followed. Tyrone was now the biggest male star in Hollywood, even surpassing Clark Gable at the box-office. In 1939, he made his first color film, Jessie James that was the top grossing film that year. One year later in 1940, Tyrone began a new phase of his career staring as the main swashbuckler in The Mark of Zorro. He was now rivaling Errol Flynn in this genre. During World War II, Tyrone served as a pilot in the US Marine Corp. located in the South Pacific. His return film in 1946, was the now classic, The Razor’s Edge. Tyrone continued to make films until his death on November 15, 1958 at the age of 44. Although Tyrone was never nominated for an Academy Award, his films won more Oscar nominations than any other star’s at the studio.
