Gutsy perseverance: 42 years in the movies
Fell into show business at the St Louis Exposition on the back of military gallantry in the South African (Boer) War, thus into movies with Kalem in 1909. Tall, well built and handsome in episodes of THE HAZARDS OF HELEN series, as well as directing. Last seen as performer in 1951 as "old man", which he was, having been born in Terowie, South Australia in 1880. Just look at those lists of films directed and performed in, dozens in the railroad melodrama genre presumably sparked from this rail junction birth town.. Love his spot as Ship Captain in John Ford's THE PRISONER OF SHARK ISLAND 1936, alongside another South Australian O.P.Heggie who played prison doctor. Critical role as Exec Sec from 1938 of the Directors Guild, awarded Honorary membership 1951. Even more films listed in the 2005 biography from McFarland -- book well indexed but unfortunately not the giant filmography. Hours of happy browsing in there!
