Charles Goldner

  1. George Cole, Quentin Durward, 1955.   The Viennese actor from numerous UK films of  the 40s/50s  died before playing Hayraddin opposite Robert Taylor as the Scottish knight of the tale by the 19th Century author,  Sir Walter Scott.   MGM had been trying to make the mini-epic since… 1935! With the hero changing from Fredric March, Errol Flynn, Stewart Granger, Laurence Olivier to, ultimately, a way too old  Robert Taylor.  He had been  announced for the hero, when much closer to the correct age, in 1938.
