Tom Ricketts

  1. Oliver Eckhardt , Forbidden, 1931.   What we have  here is… an oddity!  Copyright material and contemporary reviews indicate Ricketts played Briggs opposite Barbara Stanwyck – but the credits credit Eckhartdt.  Which brings me to  the point of this page… A celebrated Shakesperian actor in London, Ricketts eventually acted in 210 US films – after directing  178, mostly silents, including… wait for it…  this guy is historic!… the very first film shot in Hollywood.  Justified, circa 1908.   Now is this page justified, or is this page justified!
