Lord Lansdowne

Lord Lansdowne was an American wrestler who pretended to be an English Lord*. And it was alleged that the story that he and Duke York were going to Mrs. Wallace Ford's party with Thelma Todd as "Mystery Guests" was phony. I don't know for sure, myself.


*The more recent ( and more famous ) wrestler "Gorgeous George" drew inspiration from "Lord Lansdowne". Both used POMP AND CIRCUMSTANCE as their entrance music, and had attendants spray perfume in the ring in order to prepare it for the bout.
