Stage actor Sheldon Lewis made his movie debut in the 1914 serial The Exploits of Elaine. Lewis' delightfully unsubtle brand of villainy served him well in the title role(s) of Louis B. Mayer's modern-dress version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1920). One of his best and least restrained performances of the 1920s was as the strenuously dishonest Frochard in D. W. Griffith's Orphans of the Storm (1922). A bit too overpowering for the talkie era, Lewis was best suited to such bravura fare as the 1930 serial Terry of the Times. Sheldon Lewis was married to the famous screen "vamp" Virginia Pearson.
