John Garfield was one of the most under-rated and overlooked actor in Hollywood mainly due to the Red Scare that McCarthy waged in Hollywood in the 40’s. But in his debut film The Four Daughters, Garfield hit the screen with a powerful punch. As Mickey Borden, a jaded and cynical songwriter Garfield caused havoc to a once quiet peaceful family and their four daughters. Soon romantic and tragic complications ensue.
Garfield, a handsome yet roguish looking man continued to play heavy hitters and roughnecks, but of all his roles, this one is the one I remember the best. Nominated for Best Supporting Actor, John went away empty handed and within a few short years he would die, some say of a broken heart.
