From Wikipedia George Beranger (27 March 1893 – 8 March 1973), also known as André Beranger, was an Australian actor and film director of stage and Hollywood. Beranger was born George Augustus Beringer in Enmore, New South Wales, Australia, the youngest of five sons of Caroline Mondientz and Adam Beringer, a pipe-fitter. His mother committed suicide when he was three-years-old and he left home at the age of 14. He studied acting at the College of Elocution and Dramatic Art founded by Scottish actor Walter Bentley. Beranger began playing Shakespearean roles at the age of sixteen with the Walter Bentley Players. He then emigrated from Australia to California, United States in 1912 and worked in the silent film industry in Hollywood. According to a researcher, he reinvented himself in Hollywood, claiming French parentage, birth on a French ocean liner off the coast of Australia and a Paris education. Beranger worked under the names George Alexandre Beranger and Andre de Beranger. By the 1920s, Beranger had become a star, appearing in the movies of Ernst Lubitsch and D. W. Griffith.
