Biography

A professional baseball player for the Brooklyn Nationals, the Washington Americans, and the New York Nationals, Louis Durham (sometimes given as "Lewis Durham") was actually known in his day as "Bull Durham" and was thus billed in the 1918 action melodrama Hell's End. Onscreen with the New York Motion Picture Co. from the early 1910s, Durham went on to play mostly unsavory characters in potboilers but did portray the occasional ball player or, as in Victor Schertzinger's 1917 version of The Pinch Hitter, baseball coach. ~ Hans J.
