Early life and career

Warwick was born Robert Taylor Bien in 1878. Handsome and with a booming voice, Warwick trained to be an opera singer, but acting proved to be his greater calling. He made his Broadway debut in 1903 in the play Glad of It. One of his co-stars was a young John Barrymore, also making his Broadway debut. Both actors, over time, became matinee idols. For the next twenty years, Warwick appeared in such plays as Anna Karenina (1906), Two Women (1910), with Mrs. Leslie Carter, and The Kiss Waltz (1911) and Miss Prince (1912), in both of which he was able to display his singing voice, The Secret (1913), A Celebrated Case (1915) and Drifting (1922) with Alice Brady, not to mention several other plays through the end of the 1920s.

Film career

Warwick started making silent films in 1914. He made numerous productions in the 1910s primarily in Fort Lee, New Jersey. Two films, Alias Jimmy Valentine and A Girl's Folly, both directed by Maurice Tourneur have been preserved, and showcase Warwick as a silent actor, as well as Tourneur's directing talent, and both are available on home video. From the 1920s on, Warwick alternated doing plays and silent films. He was fifty when sound films arrived, and now middle aged with his matinee idol looks fading, he found plenty of work in character roles in which his voice recorded well. This eventually necessitated his moving permanently to California to be near the film studios when they moved to Los Angeles. Throughout the 1930s and 1940s, Warwick's dependable acting and resonant voice ensured that he was seldom out of work. His immense filmography includes such classics as The Little Colonel (1935) with Shirley Temple and The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938) with Errol Flynn. He was one of a number of actors favored by director Preston Sturges and appeared in many of his films, among them Sullivan's Travels (1941), I Married a Witch (1942), The Palm Beach Story (1942), Hail the Conquering Hero (1944), and Man from Frisco (1944).
