Robert Harron

Highest Rated: 97% Intolerance (1916)

Lowest Rated: 71% True Heart Susie (1919)

Birthday: Apr 12, 1893

Birthplace: New York, New York, USA

A brilliant, boyish actor discovered when working as a gofer at Biograph in 1907, Harron began as a bit-player in such films as "Dr. Skinnum" (his first, 1907) and "Bobbie's Kodak" (1908). But it took director D.W. Griffith to make a star out of him. Beginning in 1909 with "The Lonely Villa," Griffith molded Harron into a sensitive dramatic player in such films as "The Musketeers of Pig Alley" (1912), "The Battle at Elderbush Gulch" (1913) and "Judith of Bethulia" (1914). The exceptionally handsome young actor made an endearingly boy-next-door leading man for such Griffith stock actresses as Mary Pickford (eight films), Lillian Gish (15 films), Blanche Sweet (seven films), and, most prolifically, Mae Marsh (27 films).
