Wallace Eddinger Edit Profile
He started as a child actor, known as Wally Eddinger. As a child he played Cedric in Little Lord Fauntleroy which starred female child sensation Elsie Leslie. Eddinger appeared in only two silent films, The Great Diamond Robbery and A Gentleman of Leisure, in 1914 and 1915 respectively, preferring the stage.
The latter film still survives. Eddinger was married twice. The first marriage was to Ivy Lee Moore-La Grove from 1912 to 1920 and the second was to popular stage actress Margaret Lawrence (1889-1929) from 1924 to his death.
Lawrence had been previously married to a publisher named Orson Munn with whom she had two daughters. Six months after Eddinger's death, Margaret Lawrence was murdered in New York City by her lover, actor Louis Bennison, after a drunken lover's quarrel. Bennison then took his own life in what was deemed a murder suicide.
