Tyrone Power, still vital in his movies


Hey, he was Ty Power. The dashing, dark-eyed actor, who descended from a long line of them, and whose name, in 1939, nearly topped the list of Twentieth Century-Fox’s biggest box-office earners, starred in dozens of movies, often in swashbuckler roles or romantic leads. His better-known titles include The Mark of Zorro, Marie Antoinette, Blood and Sand, The Black Swan, Prince of Foxes, Witness for the Prosecution, The Black Rose, and Captain from Castile. He passed away at a young age, 44, on November 15, 1958. This year, on that date, Hollywood Heritage will be presenting an 85th Anniversary screening of the delightful 1937 romantic comedy Love Is News starring Power, Loretta Young and Don Ameche at the Hollywood Heritage Barn on Highland Avenue.

Special guests for the evening will be actress Terry Moore, who co-starred with Power in 1953’s “King of the Khyber Rifles”, plus Tyrone’s grandson, TK Power and Loretta Young’s grandaughter, Arwen Lewis.
