Why has Edmund Lowe vanished?
While its true, this actor was not up there with Tracy, Gable or Cooper, he stared in a number of above average films, and played an important role in Dinner at Eight, which had a stable of leading film stars of that age. Of all my favorite Lowe's roles, and one he plays with Claire Trevor, is as a ship board gambler. Note, this film is not available, and not scheduled to be shown on TCM. Lowe plays a down and out WWI veteran who has been kicked out his wife's family due to his lower class, and roams the seas seeking his fortune. Although he does not sail first class, he manages to get into a Poker game with first class passengers. The plot may seem a little trite were it not for Lowe's ability as an actor to play his part with Trevor to beat two rich but boorish men who are taking advantage of a young man, who happens to be his son, played by Jack Armstrong, another "lost" actor. Lowe was a handsome, but masculine man, with a great voice that carried authority and wisdom. He nearly always played the role of the good bad boy with a flair not seen in many of today's actors.

The Edmund Lowe who was in Intruder in The Dust was my uncle. He was a twin to Ephraim Lowe. They were born in1922 - Eph died in 1999 and Ed died in 2005. The only other movie they were in was Home From The Hill. Their sister was my mother, Eppie Jo Lowe Bailey.
