Nils Asther — his fall and rise would fill more pages of Hollywood history than there are studio blondes. Once considered M-G-M’s biggest bet, he was laid low by a Swedish accent when talkies came in. But he’s a big shot again and it’s said Clark Gable is worried. Wait until you see Nils in Columbia’s The Bitter Tea of General Yen.
