Personal Quote:

[on May McAvoy In all the years that I have been on the stage and worked as a director of pictures I have never known a girl so eager to learn and so eager to work to satisfy that eagerness.

Trivia:

The Byrds' 1967 song "John Robertson" was inspired by him. As a child, bassist Chris Hillman was bewildered by the sight of this silent-film throwback who wore a handle-bar mustache. His wife "Jo" is also mentioned in the song. The song was released as a single, then redone for the "Notorious Byrd Brothers" LP. See more »
