Robert Donat, actor - won 1939 Academy Award
Just for interest and to get this forum started ...
I'm just listening to an interview on Canadian public radio (CBC) where Brian Donat is being interviewed about his late father, the English actor Robert Donat, who won the 1939 Academy Award as Best Actor for his performance in "Goodbye Mr. Chips".
Everyone, of course, had expected that Clark Gable would win as Rhett Butler in "Gone With The Wind".
A permanent exhibition of the letters of Robert Donat to and from his family during the 1930's and 1940's is now on display at (a museum ?) in Manchester, England.
Brian Donat lives in Acton, Ontario, Canada.
