Description: 

Armand Kaliz was born in Paris, France in 1892. He made his Broadway debut in "The Hoyden" in 1907 and became successful in vaudeville and silent films. He appeared in films such as The Temptress (1926) with actresses such as Greta Garbo, making some 82 film appearances between 1917 and 1941, although because many of his appearances were small many more exist uncredited in films. In this portrait, his stare comes from under a stern brow and is fixated on a captivating subject. Smoke trails up from his cigarette and takes form in the smudging of Hixon's photo manipulations. One gets the sense of a situation dire, charged with the intensity of his gaze.
