Fredric March - Anna Karenina 1935
Fredric March as Count Vronsky in the1935 film adaptation of Tolstoy's Anna Karenina ... Despite winning two Oscars March is a woefully under-appreciated actor today. From his performance as both Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in 1931 to his final role as Harry Hope in the 1973 film adaptation of Eugene O'Neill's The Iceman Cometh, his intelligence, sensitivity, adaptability and sheer talent as an actor is incomparable.
The married Anna Karenina falls in love with Count Vronsky despite her husband's refusal to grant a divorce, and both must contend with the social repercussions. Directed by: Clarence Brown Starring: Greta Garbo, Fredric March, Maureen O'Sullivan, Freddie Bartholomew, Basil Rathbone, Reginald Owen, May Robson, Reginald Denny, Mischa Auer Music by: Herbert Stothart Release date: August 30, 1935
