Biography

After some stage and film experience in England, Colman moved to the USA in 1920. Though a formidable romantic lead in the silent era, it was with the sound film that Colman best asserted himself. His suavity and exceptional good looks coupled with his engaging, beautifully modulated, crushed velvet voice made him the perfect hero of many adventure movies, though he was also adept at comedy and romantic drama.
