“How did I happen to go into picture work? Five years ago, I realized what a future there was before the camera, and I went into picture work while the going was good….But I didn’t go into it as a side issue, as so many stage people do today. I went into it for good and all, giving up the stage entirely. It was quite a leap in the dark, you know, as most of the actors in those days looked down on picture work as something beneath them. But…I looked ahead.”Alec B. Francis in 1915.
