Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

(1880–1947), actor. Although born in Brooklyn, he was raised in England where he studied to become an engineer. He returned to America in order to work for Western mining interests, but soon decided to join Nat Goodwin, who was touring the region. His first New York appearance was as the Earl of Brancaster in The Whip (1912). Halliday quickly rose to become a leading man, playing such roles as the troubled sculptor Lenard Hunt in The Woman of Bronze (1920), the despairing George Conway in East of Suez (1922), the caddish man-about-town Gerald Naughton in Dancing Mothers (1924), the magician Chartrand the Great in The Spider (1927), the murderer Maurice in Jealousy (1928), and the impoverished Prince Mikail in Tovarich (1936).
