The Orphan Girl and The Fortune Teller's Curse
Monte Blue’s father was a scout for Buffalo Bill Cody and Civil War veteran, who died in a car crash when Monte was eight years old. He had four brothers and sisters, and his mother decided that she could not raise Monte as well as the other four children. Monte’s mother left him and a brother at the Soldiers and Sailors Orphans Home in Knightstown, Indiana, where he remained until he was old enough to set out on his own.
By 1915, at the age of 18, he was an extra in an early silent movie, and soon became a romantic leading man in silent moving picture shows. When sound was added to moving pictures, he continued to thrive in Hollywood, but usually as a cop or other good-guy character actor.
Monte Blue was part Cherokee and Osage Indian, and always refused to do a part where he was the bad guy, explaining that American Indians always got the villain parts. During a stage performance in Seattle, Monte Blue noticed that the dress of a chorus line girl had caught fire, so he ran over and pulled off her dress, saving her from catching on fire.
