Hunky-Heart-Throb and all-around matinee idol J. Warren Kerrigan (1882 - 1947) was singled out for ridicule following a poorly conceived remark that all artists should be exempted from military service. The editors of PHOTOPLAY MAGAZINE counter-attacked with this small column titled "Beautiful Slackers", that provides a short list of the creative souls who have fought in the war, regardless of their talents to entertain or provoke deep thought.

It would seem that getting skewered by the press had no effect on him whatever; he still didn't register for the draft for another thirteen months.
