When John Garfield sauntered
onto the screen in his first movie,
Four Daughters - sarcastic, unshaven, brooding - audiences were stunned.

Today we have hindsight - and decades of rebels and anti-heroes that have since come to the screen - but in 1938 moviegoers had never experienced anything
like Garfield.

Unlike reigning tough guys of the time Garfield had a touching vulnerability just under his abrasive surface that proved to be remarkably appealing.

Add to that little-boy-lost quality a thick shock of unruly hair and a killer smile and you had ...dynamite.
Enjoy exploring this site - a tribute to a man and actor who has not received the recognition he deserves.
