Personal Quote:

[In 1914, on doing comedy for films] Yes, of course, I like comedy, but the comedy work in the pictures is hard. It's extraordinary how the public is on to any inconsistencies in this work. It was hard enough to make it convincing in the old regular business [the stage], but in front of the camera, conditions make it more exacting than ever.

Trivia:

Irish-born silent comedy star with extensive vaudeville experience. Appeared in Essanay shorts from 1910 with Victor Potel, as 'Hank and Lank'.
