Page Peters Drowned -- 22-June-2016

Moving Picture World, 15-July-1916

Young actor Page Peters, who had appeared in a number of movies, including Cecil B DeMille's The Warrens of Virginia and William Desmond Taylor's Davy Crockett, drowned at Hermosa Beach 100 years ago today, on 22-June-1916.  The ad says George Beban would direct Davy Crockett, but the ad was probably printed before the movie was made.
