As the copy says: "Einar has become a popular leading-man about as quicly as anyone that ever invaded Hollywood." He came here from Sweden, and was an immediate hit. Alas:

On June 3, 1927, Hanson was on his way home from having dinner with Stiller and Garbo when his car apparently skidded off the road on the Pacific Coast Highway near Topanga Canyon and died on the way to the hospital. Barry Paris, in his 1994 biography Garbo says that Hanson met Garbo and Stiller at a party where Hanson became intoxicated and drove off on his own, leading to the fatal accident.
