From Wikipedia Charles Willis Lane (1869–1945) was an American stage and film actor, active from 1914 to 1929. Like many film performers born before 1900, Lane had extensive prior Broadway stage or regional theatrical experience stretching back to his youth in the 1890s. Lane was born in Madison, Illinois, and can be seen in silent films usually as a silver-haired other man or confidant. Two of his best-known roles are Dr. Lanyon in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1920) and Dr. Angus McPhail in Sadie Thompson (1928).
