|Cine-Mundial, May, 1921|
Happy 125th birthday to actor Wallace Reid who was born on 15-April-1891. He 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.
