Frank Hayes (actor)

Frank Hayes (May 17, 1871 December 28, 1923)[1] was an American film actor of the silent era. He appeared in 73 films between 1913 and 1924. An actor with a unique hatchet face appearance he appeared mostly in comedies. His facial appearance naturally lent to comedic effect in silent films, but, he also showed up in sentimental farces such as A Hoosier Romance (1918), an early film starring Colleen Moore. In his last appearance, even though brief in the theatrical cut, he played "Old Grannis" in the tragedy Greed.
