|[Lloyd Nosler's WWI Draft Registration Card, from Registration State: California; Registration County: Los Angeles; Roll: 1530903; Draft Board: 14]|
Six years later, in October 1924, he applied for a passport which included the one picture I have of him. He was scheduled to visit (and I presume film in) Italy, France, and Switzerland for Metro Goldwyn Meyer. He sailed from New York to England and on from there, and finally returned to New York on 24 February 1925.
The timing of this trip, and the film company, makes me think it was for the filming of "Ben Hur," Lloyd Nosler's most famous movie, with the legendary chariot race scene (which I could only find in this French commentary, but as a silent movie it isn't that important to hear anything).
