John Stuart

1898 - 1979

The actor John Stuart was one of the most popular actors of the 20's.
He made first acting experiences at the theater after World War I.

From 1920 he conquered the British schreen and filled the audience with enthusiasm with movies like "Her Son" (20), "The Little Mother" (22), "The Loves of Mary, Queen of Scots" (23), "Her Redemption" (24), "The Pleasure Garden" (25), "Baddesley Manor: The Phantom Gambler" (26), "The Flight Commander" (27) and "Mademoiselle Parley Voo" (28).
John Stuart also took part in some German movies in the 20's, among them "Die Frauen zweier Junggesellen" (25), "Irrgarten der Leidenschaft" (25) and "Venezianische Liebesabenteuer" (25).

During the time of ware the role offers were falling off and he appeared among others in "Ships with Wings" (41), "The Big Blockade" (42), "The Missing Million" (42) and "Headline" (43).
The British post-war film offered him only small parts with few exceptions, so in "The Ringer" (52), "Mantrap" (53), "Quatermass 2" (57), "The Revenge of Frankenstein" (58), "The Mummy" (59), "Village of the Damned" (60) and "The Scarlet Blade" (63).
