Hall of Fame
Columbus born Warner Baxter entertained millions of Americans as a Hollywood actor.
He began his career on the legitimate stage, then was discovered by film producers in Hollywood. Fox Studios cast him in one of the biggest box-office attractions, “Cisco Kid.”
He later made a personal appearance in Columbus for the world premier of another of his movies, “Kidnapped,” which opened at the Ohio Theatre May 18, 1938.
The handsome, well-groomed Baxter was not only a fine actor, but also a favorite Columbus son.
