An Honorable Mention: Frank Daniels

Frank Daniels, an illustrious stage actor, came out of a brief retirement to make his film debut for Vitagraph in 1915.  In his association with Vitagraph, he starred in two feature films and nearly four dozen short comedies from 1915 to 1917.  He played a variety of regular characters, including Captain Jiggs, Kernel Nutt and Mr. Jack.

The National Film Preservation Foundation posted one of Daniels' rare comedies, Captain Jinks, the Cobbler (1916), to their website.  If you would like to know more about Daniels, I recommend that you read the highly informative film notes that are provided.

Here are a few other photos of Daniels.
