|THE INTERNATIONAL SILENT MOVIE|
1899 - 1937
The actor Frank Vosper was active at the theater in the first place but he also took part in movies time and again. He was already grasped by the acting bug as a boy and at the age of 17 he attended the F.R. Benson and afterwards the Ben Greet Players instead of a college.
After first roles on stages he served in World
War I but was lucky to be employed by Captain Basil Dean's entertainment
unit. The experiences he made there underpinned his intention to learn
the profession of an actor seriously.
He made his film debut in 1926 with the silent
movies "The Woman Juror" and "Blinkeyes".
He experienced the height of his career in the
30's and was highly esteemed as an actor as well as an author of movies
In the last night before the arrivel he took part
at a party of the British beauty queen Muriel Oxford. Finally he wanted
to retire because he felt tired, he was seen at the window outside of Muriel
Oxford's room the last time, after that he was missed. His body was found
floating in the sea days later near Oxford. The investigation came to the
conclusion that the death was induced by accident. The newspapers were
busy with the case for weeks before the official judgment of the accidental
death was announced.
