Warren William was an actor from the 1920s to the 1940s. He had served in World War I, and afterwards became a Broadway stage actor. He appeared in two silent movies in 1922 and 1923 under his real name of Warren Krech, but he quickly returned to New York and starred in many Broadway plays, aided by his wonderful speaking voice. In 1931, he starred in his first sound movie, "Honor of the Family", and he remained in Hollywood, becoming one of Warner Bros.' top stars in the 1930s. While he was an excellent actor, he tended to get roles that John Barrymore turned down, and he was thought of by many as "the poor man's John Barrymore". Some of his movies include: The Wolf Man, Gold Diggers of 1933, Lady for a Day, Imitation of Life, and Three on a March. William passed away in 1948 at the age of 53.
