Tyrone Power, Loretta Young Tyrone Power II: Hollywood Career Rumors of a Tyrone Power-Errol Flynn romance. Total myth? Is there any evidence that Power was at all attracted to men or is that just make-believe? Okay, you asked for it. I am going to go on and on and on about this because I have had to do so much research and had to fight so hard to get a half-decent Wikipedia page for him — and that’s all it is, half-decent. So forgive me if I’m endless. I sincerely doubt the Power-Flynn thing is true. Peter Viertel, who wrote the screenplay for The Sun Also Rises, was incensed when my old boss asked him that and insisted that there was never any affair. [...]
Tyrone Power III: Gay Rumors, Errol Flynn So if Tyrone Power was off having gay liaisons while he was at Fox, it was in another part of the world in someone’s sub-sub-basement (while he was working 18 hours a day at Fox), because if Darryl Zanuck even had so much of a whiff of it, that would have been itsville. Case in point: William Eythe. Heard of him? Most haven’t. He was being brought along as a leading man by Fox in the ’40s, working in The Ox Bow Incident, The Song of Bernadette, A Royal Scandal, etc. It was all systems go, since everyone else was in the service. He could have established himself the way that Dana Andrews had. When [...]
Mai Zetterling, Tyrone Power. Two two co-starred in the 1957 drama Seven Waves Away / Abandon Ship. Tyrone Power IV: Bisexuality, Cesar Romero Rumors [Right: Tyrone Power in Jesse James.] The other thing that cracks me up — and I’ve done a study of this — if someone is outed as gay in a book, the next tell-all that comes out lists that person as someone’s gay lover, whereas in previous books, that liaison was never mentioned. A great example is Marlon Brando. A book comes out about him and now he has slept with absolutely every single man who ever walked the earth. Absolutely no discretion on Marlon’s part — if an author said someone was gay, Marlon got into bed with [...]
Annabella, Tyrone Power, Annabella’s daughter Anne, whom Power adopted Tyrone Power V: Sexual Orientation Rumors Janet Gaynor, Sonja Henie, Norma Shearer, Lana Turner — were those romances for real, or were they (or some of them) just publicity stunts? What were his marriages to actresses Annabella and Linda Christian (right) like? Tyrone Power told Sonja Henie, when he wrote to her while she was out of town, that the studio asked him to escort Janet Gaynor around; whether he was telling her the truth or not, I don’t know, because Sonja had her hooks into him big time. They had sex all the time in her dressing room, and as one of the scriptwriters on Thin Ice said, when they would [...]
Tyrone Power, wife Deborah Ann Minardos on the set of Solomon and Sheba. Power suffered a fatal heart attack during filming. Tyrone Power VI: Lana Turner, Sonja Henie, Janet Gaynor Why do you think that Tyrone Power isn’t as well-remembered today as, say, Humphrey Bogart, Clark Gable, Errol Flynn, John Wayne, Gregory Peck, and several other top stars of the studio era? I love this question because it’s such bunk. That’s nothing against you — I understand why it was asked, but it’s not true. If you go out on the street and ask any twenty-something about any of these people, they’ll tell you they don’t know who any of them are. I have a friend who is a voice teacher who [...]
Tyrone Power, Nancy Kelly on the set of Jesse James (top); Power and his mother (bottom) Tyrone Power Interview – Intro How would you describe Tyrone Power the actor? How would you describe Tyrone Power the man? Tyrone Power the actor: very versatile, disciplined, hard-working, capable of doing much more than he was allowed to do throughout most of his career. Charismatic, exuded a great warmth and charm on the screen. Extremely committed to acting and mindful of his family dynasty. As a man, he was extremely passionate, down to earth, funny, generous to a fault, loyal, and nonconfrontational. He was given to some dark moods; he was unhappy about his career after the war and bitter about...
Tyrone Power, Norma Shearer Tyrone Power I: Q&A with Maria Ciaccia Tyrone Power was a Fox contract player for nearly two decades. Were there any roles he wanted to get — whether at the studio or elsewhere — but that went to someone else? Any projects he wanted Darryl F. Zanuck to pursue, but that never came to fruition? You name it, he lost out on it. Zanuck refused to lend him out after Marie Antoinette because he had what amounted to a supporting role, and he felt that MGM had used him unfairly; however, Norma Shearer had demanded him. He was offered the role of Parris in Kings Row; Zanuck refused to loan him out. [Robert Cummings got the part.] Supposedly [...]
