Lorimer Johnston, Filmaker From Maysville Kentucky

Though maybe not as well known today as some of our other Maysville Kentucky celebrities, Lorimer Johnston (1858-1941) was a writer, actor, and director during the early decades of the 1900s.

Though he has a huge list of credits to his name over his thirty year Hollywood career (including 29 films he acted in, 28 he directed, and 9 he wrote), as a fan of old Bela Lugosi horror films, I choose to point out that he had a small part in the 1939 film Son of Frankenstein.
