From the Archives : Michael Redgrave Arrives in Hollywood

In this 1947 publicity photo, Michael Redgrave is seen disembarking a train in Los Angeles. The actor, one of England's top ranking box-office favorites at the time, had just arrived in Hollywood for his first American film production Secret Beyond the Door, released by Universal Pictures. Little did he realize what a long and illustrious career he had ahead of him. 

From the Archives is our latest series of posts where we share photos from the Silverbanks Pictures collection. Some of these may have been sold in the past, and others may still be available for purchase at our eBay store :


  1. What a delightful picture! I adore Michael Redgrave. Sometimes when I'm watching The Lady Vanishes, I forget to look at anybody else. Wouldn't it be nice if TCM would show us The Captive Heart? Or have I missed it?

    1. Redgrave was such a talented actor that I can't grasp that Gilbert ( Lady Vanishes ) and Mr. Crocker-Harris ( The Browning Version ) were played by the same actor! Yes, TCM should play The Captive Heart....and many other underrated British classics. I can't get enough of them.
