Linthicum in the (silent) movies
Posted by: Jack Linthicum (ID *****2118) Date: April 21, 2006 at 09:50:06

While fooling around trying to find some background facts on Richard "Dick" Linthicum, the some time UCLA basketball All-American (See Linthicum All-Americans) and State Department diplomat I came across a reference to a Dick Linthicum appearing in a 1929 Mack Sennet silent movie called "Uppercut O'Brien". Since Hollywood used college athletes as extras at that time, see Marion (John) Wayne, I assume this is the same Dick Linthicum..
