Erased: A Black Actor's Journey Through the Glory Days of Hollywood

Maximus Ohanzee Wildhorse, renamed "Maximus Wyld" by Hollywood, was a talented, prized, admired comedian. Of mixed race black, Chinese, and Amerindian descent, he was "the actor with a thousand faces," essentially interpreting ethnic roles: Indian chief, Mexican revolutionary, oriental dandy. His filmography is an anthology of cinema: Vertigo, The Maltese Falcon, Sunset Boulevard, The Prisoner of the Desert, Rebecca. However, no credits mention his name. On celluloid there is no imprint of his face. Maximus the precursor rests in the graveyard of Hollywood amnesia. What event pushed him into limbo? What occult and superior force has stored his career in a cinematic Bermuda Triangle? A veritable reinterpretation of the myth of American cinema through the prism of minorities, Erased reveals the political and social dimension of Hollywood productions.
