Herbert Marshall was an actor who was wounded in World War 1 and had his right leg amputated.

According to IMDB, Marshall’s loss of his leg was “A fact not well known to many moviegoers because it was hardly noticeable on screen, as long as he wasn’t asked to do anything too physical.”

From the 1920s to the 1960s he was in many British and American films and played opposite such female stars as: Bette Davis, Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Miriam Hopkins, Merle Oberon and Sylvia Sidney.

As a veteran television and stage actor he appeared in over 100 movies and television shows.

IMDB says, “He used a very deliberate square-shouldered and guided walk, largely unnoticeable, to cover up his disability.”
