Did You Know?


He suffered an injury in World War I that resulted in extensive scarring of one side of his face, and effectively disqualified him from many leading roles that required handsome actors. Banks made good use of his disability, however, presenting primarily the uninjured half of his face to the camera when playing kinder roles, and more of the scarred side when playing menacing characters.
