William "Billy" Haines
Birth: Jan. 1, 1900, USA
Death: Dec. 26, 1973, USA

Actor. He was a popular motion picture star of the 1920s and 1930s, and was the top box-office draw of 1930. After refusing to pretend to be "straight" for his studio bosses, his acting career was finished. His second talent was in design, and he built a successful career as the interior designer to the hollywood elite. His partner for over forty years, Jimmie Shields, was laid to rest next to him. (bio by: TPG)
