Thomas H. Ince was a top silent director, producer, and writer from the 1910s to the 1920s. He is probably best remembered for Civilization. Ince passed away in 1924 at the age of 44, at the height of his career under mysterious circumstances, but no one was ever charged in his death. There were many rumors that involved William Randolph Hearst having tried to shoot Charlie Chaplin, and accidentally killing Ince instead, and that he then was able to use his influence to hush up the entire affair, but it seems to have all been rumors!
