Warner Baxter

1891 - 1951

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.
