Richard Dix

  1. Laurence Olivier, Westward Passage, 1931.      The West End darling – not yet into Shakespeare or a peerage – must have been enchanted to know he was playing a role already turned down by the star of Cimarron and, thereafter, numerous pot boiling programmers.
  2. Otto Kruger, Crime Doctor, 1933.      Nothing to do with Columbia’s 1943-1949 series based on the 1940-1947 CBS radio show, this crime doctor was a cop doctoring his murder of his unfaithful wife to pin it on her lover, Nils Asther.
