Actor Johnny Hines entered films as a juvenile in 1913. After taking classes at CCNY, Hines
launched his leading-man career as star of the "Torchy" short subject series in 1920. Throughout
the 1920s, he headlined such breezy, popular feature comedies as Little Johnny Jones (1923),
Conductor 1492 (1924), The Speed Spook (1924) and The Crackerjack (1925). He also wrote or
co-wrote most of his vehicles. Described by one historian as the "Jack Lemmon of the silents,"
Hines wasn't quite as versatile as Lemmon, but his likeably extroverted screen personality was very
much in the same vein. When talkies came in, Johnny Hines' starring career abruptly ended; he
continued showing up in small character roles in films like Too Hot to Handle before retiring in the
early 1940s.
