Frank Hayes (May 17, 1871 – December 28, 1923)[1] was an American film actor of the silent era. He appeared in 73 films between 1913 and 1924. An actor with a unique hatchet face appearance he appeared mostly in comedies. His facial appearance naturally lent to comedic effect in silent films — in particular when he would leave out his dentures — but he also showed up in sentimental farces such as A Hoosier Romance (1918), an early film starring Colleen Moore. In his last appearance, even though brief in the theatrical cut, he played "Old Grannis" in the tragedy Greed.

He died in Hollywood, California from pneumonia, aged 52.[2]
