Frank Lackteen

Born: 29 August 1895, Beyrouth, Syria (now Beyrouth, Lebanon)
Died: 8 July 1968, Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, California, USA

Frank Lackteen's film career began in the silent era. He was often given parts in films that required a 'different' look to the average American such as that of a character from the Middle East (obviously) or an Eastern European or even an oriental character. Frank also fitted in to the Native American or Mexican role easily in many westerns.
