5x7 sepia image of the stage and silent film star
Photograph signed: "Milton Sills". Sepia, 5x7. Milton Sills (1882-1930) was a popular Broadway star, appearing in a dozen shows there between 1908 and 1914. In the latter year he made his film debut in The Pit, a smash hit which made him a star. Sills was cast opposite many of the silent screen's leading ladies, including Gloria Swanson, Viola Dana, Geraldine Farrar and Colleen Moore. His version of The Sea Hawk (1924) has been compared favorably to Errol Flynn's 1940 version. Shortly after making his last film, The Sea Wolf (a talkie, 1930), Sills suffered a fatal heart attack while playing tennis with his wife, actress Doris Kenyon. A book by Sills, Values: a Philosophy of Human Needs, was published posthumously in 1932. Slightly worn at edges. Ink note (unknown hand) on verso (no show through). Otherwise, fine condition.
