Henry Brandon and Judy Garland's Husband
Silas Barnaby in Babes in Toyland (1934).
Chinese mastermind Fu Manchu in the well-known serial, Drums of Fu Manchu (1940).
The evil Indian chief Scar in The Searchers (1956), who runs afoul of John Wayne.
Acacius in Auntie Mame (1958), who runs an avant-garde, pro-nudity school in Greenwich Village.
In the 1960s Henry met the young actor Mark Herron (born in 1928), formerly the manager of Judy Garland, and her husband, briefly, in 1965-66.
She feigned shock and disgust after finding him in flagrante delicto with a male actor/model; but really, shouldn't she have had a clue when the marriage was unconsummated after eight months?
Or when he had an affair with her daughter's husband, Peter Allen?
Oddly, you can find lots of photos on the internet of Mark and Judy, but none of Mark and Henry, who were together 40 times longer.
