MINI BIO:

Thoughtful and ultra-serious, Richard Barthelmess was a leading man who came to films straight from college and was used memorably by D.W. Griffith in Broken Blossoms and Way Down East.  He was immensely popular in sensitive roles through the 1920s but his appeal was never quite as strong after the coming of the talkies when he rarely seemed able to give his lines a completely natural inflection.
