I think Stewart Granger is the best romantic lead actor I have ever seen. He exudes so much confident and charm that very few actors possess. He made the film Scaramouche an absolute pleasure to watch.

Dear Sirs, Stewart Granger has indeed been ignored long enough. He made movies that all ages could and did enjoy. I have most of his movie vidios. Did you read his autobiography? (Sparks fly upwards) Did you know that it was he they wanted for the lead in "Gone with the wind"? He was off in his beloved Africa on safari and could't be located! Instead they used that lop eared Gable instead. I can just hear Stewart Granger saying,"Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn!!!Enough said????????? Do something,and let me know!

I agree entirely with the idea of nominating Stewart Grainger. He was the epitome of the English gentleman, sauve and sophisticated. I think he was a fine actor. I always think he never really made it in Hollywood as he had in England, but he made many great films and should be remembered.

Hi. This is Anne Brooks from Leicester. I have
been a great Fan of Stewart Granger since
19th April 1970, since I was 14 years old. I have
just turned 46. I have got his Autobiography
called, 'Sparks Fly Upward' which was published
on 11th February 1981. It is a very good and
enertaining book and very informative about his
life upto when he was 47. I like his films, Love
Story (1944), Adam and Evelyne (1949),King Solomon's
Mines (1950), Scaramouche (1952), The Prisoner of
Zenda (1952), Young Bess (1953), Salome (1953),
etc. I am very surprised that he was not nominated
for an Oscer or Bafta Award. He was a very good
actor and Hamson with it to. He deserves to receive
this Award. I was very shocked, when he died of
Cancer 0n 16th August 1993 at 80 years old.

Thanks to my namesake for pointing out the Mogambo mistake. My middle name is Stewart because my mother was a Stew Granger fan. My favourite SG movie is Waterloo Road in whch Stewart Granger's spiv ( vips backwards ) gets a beating from little John Mills - hardly likely since SG was an accomplished boxer who was good enough to do exhibition matches with the late great Freddie Mills-he also commented on boxing matches and did newspaper write-ups on bouts.
A good-looking cove and one of the best screen actors ever.

I've just watched Scaramouche--and Stewart Granger made a fine lead in this great Sabatini tale of the French Revolution. Sometimes (in other films) he was a bit wooden--but so was Errol Flynn. On the whole, he made some good films--particularly of the swashbuckling/adventure variety. I think he would well deserve this posthumous appreciation. The best of his films are classics.

I think Stewart Granger has been the most beautiful actor ever seen in Hollywood!! For his carismatic presence, his great talent, his English elegance and style and his marvellous physical capabilities he widely deserves a nomination for an Academy Award. I do not understand why he has been so forgotten in these years. I think that Hollywood actors of the present are not comparable to him in every sense.

I want to add my vote for Stewart Granger in his great movie, Scaramouche, one of the least recognized, best staged classics of all time. It has been popular to unfavorably compare this movie with the earlier silent film version, but standing on its own, this version is outstanding. I remain thrilled by the final dueling sequence which has yet to be paralleled on the screen. And the opening dueling scene where the sinister Marquis slashes the chest of his adversary remains indelibly printed in my mind today. Janet Leigh was at the height of her young beauty and both Granger and Ferrer gave great leading performances, a nail biter to the end! I would vote for this picture as the best picture in my memories, despite its predecessor which fortunately I have never seen.

Just this morning, I saw "Scaramouche" again. I was only 12 or 13 when I saw it for the first time. The 3 most popular movies of my young years was "Young Bess", "The Prisoner of Zenda", and of course, "Scaramouche". He was sooo handsome, and the British accent only added more polish to his characters. His looks and manner set the bar pretty darn high for anyone I was to ever meet. He epitomizes what movies are, or were, to most of us from that era; A starting place for our imaginations to soar, insights into complex personalities, and belief in the sometimes reluctant nobility of man. For these reasons alone, I think he should be honored in some way by his peers and by the fans who are grateful and appreciative of his many movies.

Stewart Granger was a very fine actor. He was one from the guard of the great old Hollywood stars, this doesn't exist today any more. I regard Stewart Granger as one of the most underestimated actors and unfortunately, he never got the success to life times which he would have earned.
He certainly deserves an Academy Award Nomination!

I am very happy to see that I am not the only person who feels a very fine actor has been almost totally overlooked in extending accolades, and it is not too late to make up for this oversight. Someone with so much class, such versatility in being adept at playing a villian (Footsteps in the Fog) or a swashbuckling hero (Scaramouche) or a comedic role (North to Alaska), and certainly one of the most handsome of the screen stars of the 30's, 40's, 50's, and even the 60's (note "Sodom and Gomorra"). His was perhaps a larger body of work than even the much-lauded Robert Taylor, certainly covering a longer span of time, and his roles were generally carried out with as much if not more penache than the late Mr. Taylor. Yet without the recognition he so richly deserved.

I have been "in love" with Stewart Granger since I was 9 years old and saw my first SG movie (it was either Young Bess or Scaramouche, probably the latter). I have probably been searching for him all my life and now - age 59 - realize there will never be another one !!

I first saw Stewart Granger in North to Alaska with John Wayne when I was a young teenager. I watched it because I was a big John Wayne fan, but it was Stewart that captivated me. Since then, I have tried to catch his movies whenever I could and now collect them. In every one he is great! No matter what the role; villan, hero, swashbuckler or rogue, or how terrible the movie, he always delivered a first class performance. He often did his own stunts and was badly hurt more than once, but never failed to show back up.

It is ridiculous that this fabulously talented man was overlooked by the academy simply because he was either too good looking or more probably because he was a real man and refused to sell out to Hollywood and compromise his principals. (Read his autobiography "Sparks Fly Upward" for a look at what Hollywood was really like in the '40's and '50's!)

Give this great actor his due! He deserves an Oscar for all the great performances he gave in terrific movies (King Soloman's Mines, Scaramouche) and in stinkers (All the Brothers Were Valiant). It is way past due! I only wish he was still alive to receive it. However, I am convinced he is having the last laugh in Hollywood Heaven.

I remember when he got older he was not happy, when he gave interviews he was very cynical of his fellow actors perhaps this is why he never was honoured in his later years.

But they say it is a better honour to be remembered as this site proves !

But why did they make his ex wife Jean Simmons a OBE in the Queens honours list ? She has lived in the US for 50 years !

SG had children by each of his 3 marriages,

Caroline LeCerf (1964 - 1969) (divorced) (daughter: Samantha)
Jean Simmons (1950 - 1960) (divorced) (daughter: Tracy)
Elspeth March (1938 - 1948) (divorced) (children: Jamie and Lindsey)

Todas sus películas se ejecutan con los mejores actores existentes en la época, siendo él el principal protagonista. ¿ Quizá su origen Inglés ?. Algo ha existido para que a este gran actor no se la haya reconocido su obra, pero ante la academia y todo lo que ella representa, están los pueblos de todo el mundo que han visto sus películas, que son los mejores maestros y reconocedores de la obra de esta estrella.

I was totally hooked by the dashing Stewart Granger after seeing him in Scaramouche, I must confess though that he is still a very close second on my list after errol Flynn. But while errol was playful, stewart was all man. I still do not understand
hollywoods obsession with the aging legends gable and
robet taylor, and even charlton heston. Just imagine films like ben hur, 10 commandments, quo vadis and mogambo or even Gable's last film (which was it) with marilym monroe if they starred Stewart. Stewart was even overlooked by hitchcock for cary grant and james stewart, or even gregory peck a pity..
Yes, stewart granger has my vote for an honarary oscar.

I agree with the idea of nominating Stewart Grainger. He was a wonderful actor. I enjoyed his movies, NORTH TO ALASKA and SCARAMOUCHE, and I have seen others as well. He was very handsome and talented, with strong ethics that were obvious. I did not know there was a site like this on the Web and am glad to have found it, so I am posting my supporting nomination for him. I agree that it is terrible he was never nominated.

I have been a devoted SG fan (in Taiwan) for 40 years, and have collected most of his movies. If the movie industry can sell SG merchandise for more than 70 years, they really owe him an Oscar.

Stewart Grainger was skilled, sophisticated, and every inch an actor, with great range (despite the fact that he was often typecast as an adventurer). He made you believe that those swordfights were real, and that he really WAS a spy, a buffoon, a landed gentleman, a fur trapper. That is the essence of good acting. His films will be around forever. I strongly support Stewart Grainger for this award.

I agree entirely with the comments made by all who have praised Stewart Granger. He deserves some recognition, but the "luvvies" of British show business would hardly honour him in my view. He was also a great Englishman proud of his military service until invalided out of the army.
My favourite movie is Scaramouche with the duel between Stewart Granger and Mel Ferrer a classic in its own right, watch this scene carefully, Stewart Granger shows great ability and athletic prowess. According to Freddie Mills, a great British fighter, Stewart could have been a professional boxer had he decided to do so. I saw Stewart Granger in London at The White City when Freddie fought Bruce Woodcock for the UK Heavyweight Championship. Stewart was surrounded by people seeking his autograph, he deserved this recognition. Now you can guess how old I am!

Stewart Granger was one of the most elegant ( physically and mentally) man in Hollywood. In his autobiography see how he speaks about his wife jean Simmons in every details. See how he speaks of his partners in general. He was a real man and a great actor. Moonfleet would have my preference. He could probably have given more to cinema that he did and as we see in his book, it is certainly circumstances and choices which made him go besides an even greater career.
Jean Simmons was a great great actress too.

Stewart Granger was certainly one of the most dashing film stars to have graced the silver screen. He stands tall along with other legendary classic leading men such as the swashbuckling Errol Flynn, the macho and rugged Clark Gable and the debonair and sophisticated Cary Grant. Like Grant, Granger was debonair, sophisticated, articulate and, above all, a great actor. Like Gable, he was able to take on rough and tumble roles with ease. Like Flynn, he was was able to become the swashbuckling leading man who rescues his leading lady and becomes her knight in shining armour. I think that Stewart Granger, had he taken on the legendary James Bond role, would have made perhaps the best James Bond because he possessed all the characteristics necessary to play this legendary role -he was handsome as Roger Moore, as athletic as Sean Connery and as sophisticated as Pierce Brosnan. Based upon Stewart Granger's outstanding and prolific film career, which spanned three generations, I wholeheartedly believe that he should be given a posthumous honorary lifetime achievement Academy Award. He deserves it.

To my eyes, Stewart Granger was a thoroughbred corraled by Hollywood and placed among quarter horses. He was the most stunning man I have ever set my eyes upon, and set the all-time standard for comparison. His physical versatility underscored his elegance and eloquence, leaving an indelible image deserving of awards far higher than the Academy can bestow. Nonetheless, it would behoove them to reconsider their oversight.

I just saw "The Wild North" for the first time about 6 months ago. Where in the world has THAT been? Absolutely the best flick! No matter what Crowther says! Anyway, now I'm collecting stills, lobbies anything I can get my hands on! Super flick has eveything: a beautiful Indian maiden, buckskins, canoes, up-north saloons, trappers, hungry wolves, shooting the rapids, RCMP's and an ending that ties it all back together in a very neat package. Add my name to the posthumous award for the very cool Stewart Granger, hey bay-bee!

Have been in love with stewart Granger from a child of 9 following my Mother and my Grandmother before me ! My Grandma's favourite film was Madonna of the Seven Moons.
S G was very handsome and tall for his generation.
He deserves a posthumous award for all thr pleasure he has given to three generations.

Stewart Granger was so handsome and so talented.
A fashinating actor. His carismatic presence, his English elegance. I never get tired of watching his films.
Absolutltely Stewart Granger deserve the Oscar - he was
and still is the best romantic lead actor I have ever
seen on screen. His movies are really timeless.
It is a shame that he has not been recognized and honoured by the Acadamy. I am collecting his movies and wish I could find the movies: Adam and Evelyne, Salome, The last hunt, Madona of the seven moons, and North to Alaska. One of his greates film is:-
Bhowani Junction - with Ava Gardner.
Please add my vote to this nomination.

YES... He is the Actor, the Charm, the Talent, the Man. From the first time I saw him (I was 12.. in 1984) I definetily FELL IN LOVE with him.. In my dreams he is my fantastic Scaramouche and he is real. In my dreams he finds King Solomon's mines and save me from cannibals... In my dreams he makes me dance a waltz at Zenda in his strong arms, like a princess. There is something magic in his glance, in his smile, in his voice... he exudes elegance and sensuality. I vote for this award. From Italy, Silvia SG's first fan...

YES!YES! YES! Nominate this fabulous actor for an Oscar. Everyone who has commented on this site has expressed my thoughts too so any more would be redundant. I am a romance (and drama) fan. S.G. was/is the epitome of these qualities in a leading man & ranks as high as any actor of his era. I am surprised/disappointed that he appears to have been overlooked, especially when the box office takings at the time must have shouted his popularity & the fans' appreciation of his fine acting skills, even when playing the "baddie". Handsome, debonair, charming & charismatic - he does still put the likes of Tom Cruise and his fellow "actors" in the shade.

Like so many others I fell in love with SG when I saw Scaramouche aged 9. I have just finished reading the 2005 book Stewart Granger, The Last of the Swashbucklers by Don Shiach. Unfortunately Mr Shiach thinks little of Mr Granger and his movies but then it appears that he has little time for many of the movie stars of the time.

I agree with all the remarks above. Stewart should be recognised for the pure entertainment that he gave us. Of course it also helped that he was so easy on the eye.

I agree with all of you fellow fans of this wonderful actor, he certainly deserves recognition. I first saw him in "King Solomon's Mines" as a teenager and have been madly in love with him since. Have seen every film, read his book also, which if anyone has read "Sparks Fly Upwards" you will understand why he has been overlooked, he ws a rebel and an individual, he did it his way, also that feud with Hughes didn't help him this is my idea. It is also a rare sight to see any of his films on TCM. Each one is a gem even the mediocore, because of his presence. He truly was a Heart Throb in the classic Hollywood sense. No one compares!!

I first saw Stewart Granger in Footsteps in the Fog, about 10 years ago. I was hypnotised by his looks and performance, and set out to see all his films as they were shown on the TV. It was surprising I suppose, that although I grew up watching old films thanks to my mother, I had neither seen, nor heard of him before. That he has been overlooked in recent years, whilst everyone still knows John Mills, David Niven etc., is a crime. I do own Sparks Fly Upward, but surely his lack of respect for authority is no reason for him to still be cast aside? I suppose he was just around in the wrong era - but his rebellion in what was an age of conformity should today afford him a little more status in the coolness stakes. Well, I suppose I liked him when I was 17, so maybe it has.

I agree with all the soul filled sentiments on this website. Stewart Granger was magnetic. We were all
blessed to view such presence on screen. A one of
actor, like Elvis P to music.
