Tom Foreman, co-star, “Tom”

Tom Foreman was John Warner’s assistant manager at the Plaza theatre, who “helped run everything.” He was also vice-president of Lord-Warner Pictures. 

Foreman was a lifelong Greenville resident, employed for many years at the Bank of Greenville, and a community leader and organizer. 

He died in 1978. Tom Foreman Park on West Fifth Street in Greenville is named for him; it’s across the street from where he and his wife, Lena Smith Foreman (1915 – 2014), lived for many years.
