George Brent (& Betty Davis)
George Brent (1904 –1979) was an Irish-born American stage, film, and television actor in American cinema.
During the Irish War of Independence (1919–1922), Brent was part of the IRA. He fled Ireland with a bounty set on his head by the British government, although he later claimed only to have been a courier for guerrilla leader and tactician Michael Collins.
Brent was married five times and carried on a lengthy relationship with his frequent Warner Bros co-star, the beret wearing actress Bette Davis.
