Lloyd's Hamilton's Mom
Lloyd Hamilton had a close relationship with his mother, Mary. This is something that came out clearly during the research that I conducted for Hamilton's biography. Take, for instance, the following quote that appeared in a Motion Picture News article from June 24, 1927: "Hamilton admits one hobby - that of journeying to Oakland to see his mother after the completion of each comedy." However, despite everything that I read about Mary Hamilton, I was never able to find a photo of her. I long imagined that she resembled the white-haired little old ladies that attended to Hamilton's boyish comic persona in films. I have now found a photo of Mrs. Hamilton. Yes, as I suspected, she was a white-haired little old lady.
