Best remembered as one of silent screen star Barbara La Marr's many husbands, handsome Jack Daugherty (or Dougherty as it was sometimes spelled) began his career starring in minor action melodramas for low-budget producer Benjamin F. Wilson. Although most of Wilson's cheap fare only played the grind-houses, Daugherty came to the attention of Universal who paired him with newcomer Laura La Plante in a series of Western two-reelers. But true Western stardom eluded him and he did much better in serials, of which he made no less than nine, seven of which were produced for Universal. But La Marr's sensational death from an apparent drug overdose would forever taint Daugherty's reputation and he was playing supporting roles, mostly villainous, by the end of the decade. A second marriage to former WAMPAS Baby Star Virginia Brown Faire ended in divorce after only one year and Daugherty was all but forgotten by moviegoers when he committed suicide in May 1938.
