Another Broadway Actor Defects to Hollywood

Bob was not a "Star" on Broadway, just "a comparative newcomer among Broadway juveniles."  His last appearance was in the comedy Possession (1928), which ran from October 2nd to November 1st, 1928.  The play was not a big success, but it did provide him a chance at stardom in the movies.  By January of 1929, he and Betty are on a train to Hollywood with contract in hand.

1928 was a good year for Bob.  The 24-year-old appears on Broadway, marries Betty and then signs on to a career in movies.  Not bad.
