Best remembered for playing the pompous Watson Flint in Buster Keaton's feature film debut The Saphead (1920; released on DVD in January 2000), veteran stage actor Edward Alexander had played Sinclaire in the 1913 IMP version of Uncle Tom's Cabin. Although a great favorite of director Cecil B. DeMille, Alexander chose a return to the legitimate stages following The Saphead, his final film.
