    I swear, he looked exactly like Leonardo DiCaprio in Marie Dressler's Emma. They probably had the height and built as well. Did you see a resemblance between the two while watching Emma or is it just me?

    So glad you got to see Emma. It's one of my favorite Dressler films.

    Oops, as to your question, he looks a little like his Howard Hughes character in The Aviator. I see Di Caprio as having a squatter, broader face.

    Richard Cromwell was gay and in an attempt to salvage his career married a very young (17) yr old Angela Lansbury. Needless to say neither the career or the marriage lasted very long.

    Died of liver cancer at age 50. That's very young.

    BTW, I thought Angela was 19 years old.

    Elegant20 I stand corrected and repentant. She was 19 yrs old but still dumb. When I first saw him as a small child even I knew he was gay:rolleyes:

    Apology accepted. I was just seeing Blithe Spirit and I thought it was highly ironic that Angela Lansbury stared alongside with Rupert Everett. I wondered if Angela thought it was deja vu all over again.

    Though I remembered that Angela was quoted that the marriage was a huge mistake and it was not bound to work(career-wise, that is). But Richard Cromwell and Angela did remain friends till his death in 1960.
