Double Speed -- February 29, 2020

Moving Picture World, 14-February-1920 
Wallace Reid died tragically young on 18-January-1923.

Everything I have read about him says what a nice guy he was, and I don't think it was just people who were trying not to speak ill of the dead.

He worked for DW Griffith, having important parts in Birth of a Nation and Intolerance. He starred in many comedies, including several that involved auto racing.

He was injured in a train wreck and became addicted to morphine. This led to his early death.

I have enjoyed all of his movies that I have seen.
