J. Warren Kerrigan was a movie star while filmmaking was still in its infancy, having made his screen debut in 1910. He was also the first queer American movie star. He made over 380 films, most of them short subjects back in the beginning of his career.
Although he regularly played heroic, “manly” roles, he was in real life somewhat different from the characters he played. “The perfumed, effeminate J. Warren Kerrigan posed as a fast-shooting, buckskin-wearing cowboy.” (Mann, p.1)
