Looking far younger than he really was, Eddie Phillips co-starred with Dorothy Gulliver and George J. Lewis in Universal's two-reel varsity comedies The Collegians (1926-1929). Set in fictional Calford College but filmed at U.S.C., The Collegians took the characters through four years of fun-filled, if less than scholarly, adventures, a sort of comedic Beverly Hills 90210. Phillips, whose character was the most accident-prone of the trio, was actually a fine dramatic actor who had begun his screen career in 1921, playing Mary Pickford's ill-fated brother in The Love Light, a fine melodrama directed by Pickford's friend, the writer Frances Marion. The Collegians series culminated in the feature comedy College Love (1929), which was released in Movietone. Sound had an ill effect on Phillips' status in Hollywood and he spent the remainder of his career on Poverty Row, usually playing thugs and henchmen in scores of B-movies and serials. He was killed when hit by a car near his home in North Hollywood, CA.
