Happy Birthday: Charles Boyer

Charles Boyer was born on August 28, 1899, in Figeac, France. I haven't seen enough films with this guy and I need to. I absolutely loved him as the villain in Gaslight (1944). He is so suave and utterly conniving at the same time; it is perfect. The only other film I've seen him in is How to Steal a Million (1966).

Sadly, on August 26, 1978, Charles Boyer took his own life a couple of days after his wife of 44 years passed away. He took a fatal dose of barbiturates. R.I.P. Charles Boyer.
