A major stage star from England, old and wizened Frederick Warde (born Frederick Barkham Warde) found himself the leading character actor for the New York-based Thanhouser company, where his son Ernest C. Warde directed him in well-mounted productions of Silas Marner, King Lear (1916) -- which he had performed with great success on stage in 1901 -- and The Vicar of Wakefield (1917). With the demise in 1918 of the Thanhouser company, Warde returned to the legitimate stage. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
