Ostensibly one of the cadre of "Latin Lovers" who sought to displace Rudolph Valentino from his perch as sex symbol extraordinaire, Antonio Moreno was a fixture during the silent era, playing the "stalwart hero and romantic lead." In real life he was married to wealthy socialite Daisy Canfield Danziger and stepfather to her three children. Together the family lived in this "huge Spanish-style showcase called Crestmount and became famed for their parties."
