Leslie Banks

  1. Nils Asther, The Bitter Tea of General Yen, 1932.    Accents are accents…  Constance Bennett’s Christian missionary  fell for Chinese warlord Asther… who was Swedish!   Other contenders included British Leslie Banks and the Americans  Leo Carrillo, and Chester Morris. (Some 25 years later, in the similar (but true) Inn  of the Sixth Happiness, Ingrid Bergman’s  missionary become involved (untrue) with a Chinese Army officer  Curd Jürgens – who was German!).
