Charles Laughton : Robert Morley and Charles Laughton

Robert Morley and Charles Laughton

Pretty similar.

Compare Morley in Outcast of the Islands and Laughton in Jamaica Inn.

Re: Robert Morley and Charles Laughton

Never seen Outcast of the Islands, but I can definitely see the similarity. I would venture to say that Laughton was many times the actor Morley was, but they both possess a certain similar quality that I enjoy in both of them.

Re: Robert Morley and Charles Laughton

Other than their appearances there was no similarity between Laughton and Morley. Laughton had a far better range than Morley. One connection is that Laughton was supposed to star in MARIE ANTOINETTE. Morley made his film debut in that film.

Re: Robert Morley and Charles Laughton

Just saw OUTCAST OF THE ISLAND today and it was the first time I've seen Robert Morley in a real dramatic part.

However I don't think he and Charles Laughton had much in common except for their less than handsome appearances.
