Trivia (3)

Wavy-haired comedian who appeared in numerous silent one-reelers after nine years of theatrical experience. During his theatrical and early film career in Philadelphia, Harry was married to Nellie Campbell, and had three children. Later, upon moving to California, Harry married leading actress Rosemary Theby and often co-starred with her, usually as husband and wife, in a series of one reel films for the Vim Comedy Film Company. During the 1910's and 1920s, Myers worked variously for Lubin, Pathe, Universal, Fox, Vitagraph, Paramount, Warner Brothers, Tiffany-Stahl and Metro. By the early 20's, had attained star status in his own right. His career declined with the advent of sound.
Although The American Film Index (1976) includes Harry Myers among the players of D.W. Griffith's The Guerrilla (1908) and Her First Biscuits (1909), further research has found no foundation for this information; Motion Picture Magazine (September 1913) confirms that he was never at Biograph, and suggests there may have been some confusion with fellow Lubin player Arthur V. Johnson who did work there. Myers' first work in front of the camera was in 1909 for the Lubin Company in Philadelphia.
