Francis Ford

Born: 14 August 1881, Portland, Maine, USA
Died: 5 September 1953, Los Angeles, California, USA

Francis was the older brother of John Ford the director of many films, including Westerns starring John Wayne. Francis was a director himself during the silent era before concentrating solely on acting when sound arrived. His acting roles became smaller as time went on appearing in uncredited non-speaking roles by the late 1930s.

Francis Ford is being examined by the doctor, Thomas Mitchell. This role was a bit strange in that Francis Ford wasn't allowed to speak. When asked a question the answers were always given by the other actors, such as Marga Ann Deighton who played his wife.
