Does anyone have a pic on hand of Fritz Lang and Thea von Harbou which would be suitable for iconning? I have this gorgeous picture saved to my hard drive, but it really wouldn't do the job. Great pic, though.

I know it's pretty unlikely that anyone will have something like this, but of all the places to ask, this is probably the best. :)

Claude Rains is one of the finest actors to ever step in front of the camera. He is more than just a character actor or supporting player. He has charm, sophistication, real substance. With that lovely, distinctive voice and those expressive eyes (and eyebrows) Rains is a pleasure to listen to and watch. He is a scene stealer--and that is meant as a compliment. Very few actors could steal the spotlight from such stars as James Stewart, Bette Davis, Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Cary Grant; but Rains did and with great ease and class.
