Montagu Love

Montagu Love (15 March 1877 – 17 May 1943), also known as Montague Love, was an English screen, stage and vaudeville actor. Born Harry Montague Love in Portsmouth, Hampshire, England, and educated in Great Britain, Love began his career as an artist and military correspondent. His first important job was as a London newspaper cartoonist. Love honed basic stage talents in London, and in 1913 sailed to the U.S. with a road-company production of Cyril Maude's Grumpy. Usually cast in heartless villain roles, in the 1920s, he played opposite Rudolph Valentino in The Son of the Sheik; opposite John Barrymore in Don Juan; and appeared with Lillian Gish in 1928's The Wind. He also portrayed 'Colonel Ibbetson' in Forever (1921), the silent film version of Peter Ibbetson. Love also played the cowardly and treasonous Bishop of the Black Canons in The Adventures of Robin Hood, starring Errol Flynn.
