Actor. Born in Rochester, New York, he was a popular comic performer on the Broadway Theatre scene before he broke into silent films. His first film "Six Cylinder Love" (1921), was also a Broadway production and during one of theatrical performances, Sipperly, who played a high-powered car salesman, accidentally drove an actual automobile off the stage and into the first row of seats. Of the ten films he appeared in, his most notable portrayal was as the barber in "Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans" (1927), which also won the Academy Award for Best Picture. He died in Bangor, Main, at age 30.
