This handsome, fiery Latin Lover of the silent screen co-starred with some of the era's most famed leading ladies, and was dubbed "The It Man" by author Elinor Glyn. Born in Madrid, Moreno came to the US as a teenager and began acting onstage in the early 1910s. He supported such stars as Maude Adams, Julia Marlowe and Mrs. Leslie Carter, but his accent limited his roles. The silent screen was more accommodating. In 1912, he made his screen debut in "The Voice of the Millions" and went on to appear in over a dozen films at Biograph, many directed by D W Griffith, including "The Musketeers of Pig Alley" (1912) and "Judith of Bethulia" (1914). By 1914, Moreno had become a regular stock member of Brooklyn's Vitagraph Studios.
