Biography by Hans J. Wollstein

With his all-American good looks, blonde silent screen leading man Larry Kent (born Henri Trumball) became mildly popular in mainly lighthearted fare of the 1920s. Kent appeared in such series as FBO's The Adventures of Maizie and Fighting Hearts and later starred in the action serial The Masked Menace (1927) but his type was perhaps too bland for major stardom in a field that included proven box-office names such as the similar Glenn Tryon, Johnnie Walker, and William Haines, and sound pretty much relegated him to bit parts. Kent hung in there, however, and appeared in films and television as late as 1964. He should not be confused with Canadian writer/actor/director Lawrence L. Kent.
