Elmer Booth

Born: 9 December 1882, Los Angeles, California, USA
Died: 16 June 1915, Los Angeles, California, USA

Elmer Booth was a promising silent screen actor whose career was cut short when a car he was a passenger in crashed at high speed into a moving train. The car was driven by Tod Browning who would later go on to be a famous film director of such classics as 'Dracula' and 'Freaks'.
