Actors

Born in Montana on May 7, 1901, with the given name Frank, this actor started out as a stunt rider, and later won two Academy Awards for the strong, stoic persona of his characters.  Behind the scenes, though, he was an art collector and a womanizer.  Who was this friend to both Ernest Hemingway and Pablo Picasso, and who was once called "Paramount's paramount skirt-chaser"?

Born January 18, 1904 as Archibald Leach, this cinema leading man donated his entire salary from 1940's The Philadelphia Story  to British war relief.  Though he never won a competitive Academy Award, he was nominated twice and received an Honorary Oscar in 1970.  By what name was he better known?
