I know Jerome Courtland from the WWII film Battleground as Abner Spudner ("That's fer sher! That's fer dang sher!"). He was movies like Santa Fe with Randolph Scott, And The Man from Colorado with William Holden and Glenn Ford. He starred in the 6 part series The Saga of Andy Burnett on ABC's Disneyland in 1957. He would keep his association with Disney as a producer on movies like Escape to Witch Mountain, Ride a Wild Pony, and Pete's Dragon, and also producing several Disney and non-Disney TV series. As a director, he helmed episodes of Matt Houston, Dynasty, The Colbys, Hotel, and Knots Landing.

Also today:

Marlene Dietrich (1901-1992) the German singer and actress that inspired Madeline Khan's Lily Von Schtupp! She first gained notice singing Lola Lola in The Blue Angel in 1930 after several years making silent films in Germany. This led to her being signed by Paramount, where she made Morocco, her first American film, co-starring Gary Cooper, which earned her an Oscar nomination. She worked at first exclusively with director Joseph Von Sternberg, making six films, but in the mid '30s a couple flops made her box office poison. She rebounded in the Role of Frenchy in 1939's Destry Rides Again with Jimmy Stewart. She turned down an offer to make films for the Nazi Party in Germany, and became an American citizen in 1939. During WWII, she was one of the first celebrities to participate in selling war bonds, an traveled overseas to entertain the troops at USO shows. She received the Medal of Freedom in 1947 for her efforts during the war. In the '40s, '50s and '60s, she would appear in movies like Rancho Notorious, The Spoilers (with John Wayne and Randolph Scott), Witness for the Prosecution, Touch of Evil, and Judgement at Nuremberg. She died in Paris at the age of 90, and was buried in Berlin.
