Comedian and romantic lead Bobby Vernon staffed numerous silent films. Born Silvion de Jardins in Chicago, the son of noted actress Dorothy Vernon, he first appeared on-stage when he was only 11. Five years later, Vernon was appearing in Universal's "Joker" comedies. He began starring in Keystone romantic comedies opposite Gloria Swanson in 1915. Occasionally Vernon appeared under his birth name in the early years. He began appearing in Al Christie romantic comedies in 1917. Vernon enjoyed popularity until the dawn of talkies. He became a comedy supervisor at Paramount after that and worked on the films of W.C. Fields and Bing Crosby.
