  • Notes 
    • was one of early films fine actors who later turned to directing. Had he lived longer it is thought he would have been a formadible director. Born in either 1885 or 1888 his parents were John Wm.Sherman, a theatrical producer (1855-1924) and Julia Gray Sherman, an actress and daughter of actress Kate Gray. John, Lowells father, was a son of John Wm.Sherman, born NYC and Margaret Heistler, born in Holland. In 1905 Lowell embarked on his first real stage work in New York and his first film work took place in 1914. From his beginings he proved to be a respected actor who played the role of the playboy and villian very well. He directed early films for Greta Garbo & Katherine Hepburn, married three times and was along for the ride in 1921 when Fatty Arbuckel had his unfortunate incident in San Francisco. His death is attributed to his wearing scanty clothing because of the hot lights and in turn cathing a cold which later robbed him of his voice and life in 1934, the same year he served as pall bearer for actor Russ Columbo.
