Tragic Harry

1809D.11w

This is a studio portrait, dating from 1913, of the German theatre and movie actor, Harry Walden. He was born in 1875 in Berlin and – following a period in the army – became an actor: first of all in the theatre and then from 1912 onwards in the German film industry. His end was tragic: he became addicted to morphine and eventually committed suicide in 1921.
