Don Terry & June Collyer

Silent movie stars

Silent movie stars. Private Collection

An original print from 1928 I added to my collection. I love the pose and the sepia tone. Don Terry (his entertainment industry name) was an actor of the 30s and 40s. This photo is from the first film that discovered him “Me, Gangster”.

Donald Loker (his real name) went on to marry the heiress of Starkist and became an executive of the company.  He was board chairman of the Donald P. Loker Cancer Treatment Center in Los Angeles, a founding member of the Southern California Cancer Center and the California Museum of Science and Industry Foundation.

He was born on August 8, 1902 and died on October 6, 1988. He was tall too at 6′ 1/2″.

Unlike Don Terry who had somewhat of an obscure movie career, June Collyer was a famous actress of the time. Check out her IMDB for more info on her prolific career.
