Philippe De Lacy (Philippe De Lacy)

Philippe De Lacy

Actor. Born in Nancy during World War I, he lost his mother and five siblings when a German shell devastated the family home. American nurse, Miss Edith De Lacy, found him beside his dead mother, (he was only two days old) adopted him and brought him to America where his stunning looks soon made him a sought after model for advertisements, and eventually brought him to the screen. De Lacy is fondly remembered as ‘Michael Nicholas Darling’ in “Peter Pan,” (1924) as Mary Pickford’s brother in “Rosita” (1923) and as Greta Garbo’s son in “Love.” (1927) De Lacy retired from acting in 1930 and later became an executive of the J. Walter Thompson Adverstising Agency in Hollywood. De Lacy died from Carcinoma of the Colon. (bio by: MC)
