A few of its members became Hollywood stars--Franchot Tone and John Garfield--but, on the dissolution of the company, many of its members found work as well-paid character actors in Hollywood films. Bohnen was also one of the founders of the Actors Lab in Los Angeles, the place where Marilyn Monroe first studied acting seriously.|
