Did You Know?
[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.
He and James Dean
are the only actors to receive an Academy Award nomination for both their first and last screen appearance.
Known for his complete transformations into the roles he played (often changing his voice and appearence)
