So this is Hollywood!

Here’s yet another photograph from the August 18 1933 edition of the Toronto Daily Star, this time of an Australian theatre impresario.

Ben Fuller (1875-1952) was born in London, and first appeared on the stage at the age of nine. His father moved to Australia in 1889, eventually bringing his family with him, and started building a chain of theatres, which his two sons took over in 1910.

Fuller appears not to have been mixed up in any noteworthy scandals during his lifetime. He was knighted by King George V in 1921, so he had been a Sir for twelve years by the time this photograph appeared.
