Edmund Dantes Lowe (March 3, 1890 - April 21, 1971) was an American actor. His career included over 100 films in which he starred as the leading man. He is best remembered for his role as Sergeant Quirt in the 1926 movie, What Price Glory. Making a smooth transition to talking pictures he remained popular but by the mid 30's he was no longer a major star. He remained a valuable character actor at the major studios while continuing as a leading man for such "Poverty Row" studios as Columbia Pictures where his skills could bolster low budget productions. He also starred in the 1950s television show, Front Page Detective and appeared as the elderly lead villain in the first episode of Maverick in 1957. Lowe met Lilyan Tashman while filming Ports of Call. Lowe and Tashman were wed on September 21, 1925. The wedding occurred before the release of the film. The two made their home in Hollywood, in a house thought to have been designed by Tashman. Both maintained their acting careers. As a couple, Tashman and Lowe became more prominent in Hollywood than they had as single people. They entertained lavishly in their Art Deco Beverly Hills home, and Tashman began appearing on "Best Dressed" lists. Their respective film careers began to improve as a result of the publicity they began to generate. During Tashman's battle with cancer towards the end of her life, Lowe remained near her bedside. Lowe's third wife was costume designer Rita Kaufman. They were married from 1936 to 1950.
