~Biography~
Gaunt British actor Percy Marmont was the George Brent of the silent era; though not a particularly
commanding screen presence in himself, Marmont was the much-in-demand leading man of such
dynamic 1920s actresses as Ethel Barrymore, Geraldine Farrar, Clara Bow and Nita Naldi. Marmont
launched his theatrical career in London at age 17, then worked with touring companies in
Liverpool and South Africa. While in the latter country he made his first film appearance in 1913's
The Voertrekkers; his second movie was the Australian The Monk and the Woman (1916). Then it
was on to New York, where he made his American film bow opposite popular leading-lady Elsie
Ferguson in Rose of the World (1917). Resettling in Hollywood, Marmont starred in his favorite
film, a 1922 adaptation of the stage hit If Winter Comes. All told, he appeared in over 50 silent films
then enjoyed a thriving career as a character actor in British talkies. He also starred in the London
stage versions of such American long-runners as Witness for the Prosecution, The Philadelphia
Story and The Little Foxes. Percy Marmont retired at the age of 85; he died 9 years later.
