From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Warner Leroy Baxter (March 29, 1889 –
May 7, 1951) was an American actor, known for his role as The Cisco Kid in In
Old Arizona (1929), for which he won the second Academy Award for Best Actor in
the 1928–1929 Academy Awards. Warner Baxter started his movie career in silent
movies. Baxter's most notable silent films are probably The Great Gatsby (1926)
and The Awful Truth (1925). Today The Great Gatsby is one of many lost films of
the silent era. When talkies came out, Baxter became even more famous. Baxter's
most notable talkies are In Old Arizona (1929) 42nd Street (1932), and the 1931
20 minute short film, The Slippery Pearls.
