Hurd Hatfield
Actor, The Picture of Dorian Gray (1945)
Hurd Hatfield essays Dorian throughout the entire film with the same lack of facial animation which Clara Kimball Young employed in char- acterizing those moments of the screen transcription of the Du Maurier novel when Trilby was totally under the spell of the hypnotic prowess of the Svengali of Wilton Lackaye. Further in the direction of novelty, young Hatfield dubiously enhances Dorian, described in the text as ‘a young man of extraordinary personal beauty’ with as unfortunate an affliction of acne as a make-up department has been called upon to conceal.
(Herb Sterne, Rob Wagner’s Script)
