Actor, Ross Alexander, was born Alexander Ross Smith on Jul 27, 1907 in Brooklyn, NY. Alexander died at the age of 29 on Jan 2, 1937 in Los Angeles, CA and was laid to rest in Forest Lawn (Glendale) Cemetery in Glendale, CA.
Tall, liquid-lipped and soulful-looking, Alexander Ross was a rather gangling leading man. On stage from the age of 16, the loose-limbed Alexander was one of Warners' foremost lighter leading men in the mid-1930s, especially in college-style comedies opposite fluffy leading ladies such as Anita Louise. He is probably best remembered as Demetrius in 1935's Midsummer Night's Dream.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Film Stars).
