Musician
    (January 14, 1908-September 2, 1934)
    Born in Camden, New Jersey
    Sang 'Prisoner of Love' and ‘You Call It Madness, But I Call It Love’
    Accidentally shot by photographer Lansing Brown
    Acted in 'The Texan,' 'Broadway Through a Keyhole' and 'Wake Up and Dream'
    He was accidentally shot and killed when his friend tried to light a match on the wood panel of an antique pistol.
    His mother was never informed of his death because his friends sent her holiday cards with his signature.
    He disliked being called a ‘crooner.’
    Tiny Tim's album 'Prisoner of Love' was a tribute to him.
    Even though Lansing Brown was cleared of any wrong doing he spent the rest of his life guilt-ridden.
    He was dating Carole Lombard at the time of his death and they are buried in the same cemetery.
    He was a talented violinist as well as a singer.
