Biographical Notes:

French actor Charles Boyer was perhaps best known for his 1944 role in "Gaslight" (in which he tried to convince Ingrid Bergman's character that she was going insane). 

He studied philosophy before he went to the theatre. 

Although he had at first no intentions to pursue a career at the movies he used his chance in Hollywood after several filming stations all over Europe. I

In the beginning of his career his beautiful voice was hidden by the silent movies, but in Hollywood he became famous for his whispered declarations of love. 

In 1934 he married Pat Patterson, his first wife. He was so faithful to her that he decided to commit suicide two days after her death in 1978
