Walter Byron before his off-screen death in 'Queen Kelly'
Walter Byron (1899 - 1972)
Brother of Jack Byron
Queen Kelly (1929) [Prince Wolfram]: Presumably commits suicide (off-screen) by stabbing himself, while kneeling beside Gloria Swanson's body; the movie ends with him drawing his sword, but it's pretty clear what he's about to do. (This occurs in the ending prepared by Gloria and Gregg Toland after director Erich von Stroheim was fired; in the original ending (reconstructed for the DVD through stills, captions, and the surviving footage), Walter and Gloria both survive.)
