THE POPULAR MAX LINDER

   

   The portrait of Max Linder which appears in this department of THE MIRROR this week will be recognised at once as that of the immensely popular Pathe comedien. He is probably the most versatile motion picture actor known in the films. He is certainly a constant delight as a comedian.

   His face was seen frequently in Pathe comedies two years or so ago, but for a time he disappeared from the pictures. A few months ago he was re-engaged, it is said, at a very high salary. He is credited with writing and directing all the picture stories in which he appears, and in addition to being an actor, director and author, he is an accomplished swordsman and athlete. He comes from a family of some note, we are told, his father being a prominent wine grower and the mayor of his town. (The New York Dramatic Mirror, 30.7.1910)
