When I showed this photo to two friends neither of them was able to tell me who they were looking at, despite my saying that he was one of the twentieth century’s most famous people. I wasn’t surprised they didn’t recognise him, as without his props and make-up he looks very different to the way the world knows him.
Do you know who this is? Have a good look at him before scrolling down to see the information that is written on the back of this 1920s press photo.
Here are some images related to the film which I swiped from IMDB.
