Did You Know?
[on working with Gary Cooper
in The General Died at Dawn
(1936)] For three days I acted rings around him. I've got him stopped. Against my acting he can do nothing. So I look at the rushes. On the screen I am there. Everybody else is there. But what do I see? Nothing! Nothing, that is, except Gary Cooper. He isn't doing anything at all, but he's taking the scenes away from me.
Considered the first Armenian-American film star.
Played characters of many different nationalities and ethnicities, though ironically not his own (Armenian).
