Robert Warwick

Robert Warwick (9 October 1878 – 6 June 1964) was an American stage, film and television actor with over 200 film appearances. Warwick was born Robert Taylor Bien in 1878. Handsome and with a booming voice, Warwick trained to be an operatic singer, but acting proved to be his greater calling. He made his Broadway debut in 1903 in the play Glad of It. One of his co-stars in this play was a young John Barrymore, also making his Broadway debut. Both men quickly became matinee idols. For the next twenty years, Warwick appeared in such plays as Anna Karenina (1906), Two Women (1910), with Mrs. Leslie Carter, The Kiss Waltz (1911), Miss Prince (1912), in both of which he was able to display his opera-trained singing voice, The Secret (1913), A Celebrated Case (1915) and Drifting (1922) with Alice Brady, not to mention several other plays through the end of the 1920s. Warwick started making silent films in 1914. He made numerous productions in the 1910s primarily in Fort Lee, New Jersey.
