Harold Minjir was probably Hollywood's busiest Male dress extra, during Hollywood's Golden Era appearing in literally hundreds of films,often playing hotel desk clerks. It was in one film starring Anna May Wong from the 1930's, "Shadowplay" in which he made his mark playing an obviously Gay Butler, who in the finale is the Hero who saves the Day. Becoming one of Cinema's first true Gay Heroes.

A Correction to the earlier comment regarding Harold Minjir's heroic role, the title of the film referenced above was "Daughter of the Dragon" starring Anna May Wong from 1932 not "Shadowplay".
