The story of Max Linder's death (it came out in the leading bioscope journal of England) was due to a remarkable fact. Max is an enthusiastic photographer, and as he was not allowed by the war authorities to carry a camera he handed it over to a press friend who was acting as war correspondent for a Paris paper. The latter, who somewhat resembled Max Linder, was killed by a stray long-distance shell, he being actually buried as Linder on account of the nameplate on his camera.
