Philippe De Lacy
Born in Nancy, France
on July 25, 1917

I have seen several versions of the spelling of Philippe's name. I am using the version most often found on the back of vintage prints issued in the 1920s.

Philippe was born during a World War I air raid in which his mother was killed. He was adopted by Mrs. Edith DeLacy, who was associated with the Woman's Overseas Hospital. After the war ended, Mrs. DeLacy brought Philippe to America where his stunning looks soon made him a sought after model for advertisements, and eventually brought him to the screen.
