Monte Blue rose from a stuntman in D.W. Griffith’s “Birth of a Nation” to become a leading man in
silent films and the first “talkies.”

Blue starting his film career in 1913 and was Warner Bros. first he-man contract star. He appeared in
many cowboy films.

During the peak of his career in the 1920s he starred in such films as “Orphans of the Storm”; “White
Shadows in the South Seas,” one of the first part-sound films; and “The Kentuckians.”
His leading ladies included Mary Miles Minter, Mary Thurman, Pauline Garon, Ethel Clayton, Marie
Prevost and Irene Rich.

One of his early stunt roles was in “Intolerance,” the first $1-million picture ever made. He played the
part of a warrior who tumbled off the walls of Jericho after his head was lopped off by a swordsman.

In later years he appeared frequently on “Rawhide,” “Wagon Trail” and “The Lone Ranger” television
programs.
