| Forman (who I had never heard of) |
Tom Forman committed suicide in 1926 at 32 or 33. He's better remembered today as a director than an actor. You probably have seen "Shadows" (1922) with Lon Chaney. I think it's Chaney's best acting in film. Forman directed that. I also have two other films he directed: 1923's "The Virginian", a weak leading vehicle, but Russell Simpson plays Trampas to perfection, and 1924's "The Fighting American", with young Mary Astor playing second fiddle to Pat O'Malley, Warner Oland, and Raymond Hatton, a potboiler but fun to watch.
