Urbane mature, British leading man whose good looks and finely modulated voice made him an ideal romantic lead. Marshall starred opposite such stars as Marlene Dietrich, in "Blonde Venus" (1932), and Greta Garbo, in "The Painted Veil" (1934), as well as in two Hitchcock films, "Murder" (1930) and "Foreign Correspondent" (1940). He proved an able opponent-husband to Bette Davis in "The Letter" (1940) and "The Little Foxes" (1941), both directed by William Wyler, and displayed a delightful flair for comedy in Ernst Lubitsch's brilliant "Trouble in Paradise" (1932). The son of actors Percy F. Marshall and Ethel May Turner, he was married to actresses Edna Best (1928-1940) and Boots Mallory. Marshall lost a leg during WWI and his wooden replacement limb was known to trouble him considerably through the years.
