Top Ten 1937

BIL'S BEST ACTOR

There has rarely been as impressive a display of masculinity on screen as Jean Gabin; a hard but handsome face, a stern but tender manner, a blocked sense of emotion that barely hides a layer of vulnerability, he was a wonder of complexity and tension in just about every film he made. One of his earliest, notable lead roles was in Julien Duvivier’s Pepe Le Moko, an enjoyable potboiler that would hardly be remembered if it wasn’t for Gabin’s solid performance (it was later remade with Charles Boyer as Algiers).

Honour Roll: Humphrey Bogart, Marked Woman; James Cagney, Something To Sing About; Cary Grant, The Awful Truth; Spencer Tracy, Captains Courageous
