Other Relationship Information about Annabella and Tyrone Power:
When Darryl F. Zanuck, 20th Century Fox studio boss, realized the seriousness of the romance between her and his top male star, however, he strongly objected, fearing that Power would lose part of his female fan base if he were married. Zanuck offered to give Annabella plum roles in movies to be filmed abroad, in order to get her out of the country and away from one of Hollywood's biggest heartthrobs. When Power and Annabella went against Zanuck's wishes and married, Annabella's career at 20th Century Fox suffered greatly. After the marriage, Zanuck refused to assign her to movies for the studio, in punishment for their disobedience. After her marriage, she had to wait until after Tyrone Power had left the studio for military service to make another movie. This lack of movie work caused the very talented actress to seek stage work in order to help satisfy her desire to act.
Classic Quotes by Annabella and Tyrone Power about their relationship:
"I could not stop Tyrone's love for me, or my love for Tyrone." Annabella
"Our troubles began because the war started earlier for me, a French-born woman, than it did for Americans. It is always difficult to put one's finger exactly on the place and time where a marriage starts to break up, but I think it began then. We were terribly sad about it, both of us, but we knew we were drifting apart. I didn't think then and I don't think now that it was his fault, or mine." Annabella 1948
