Cat. #0017772: CHARLIE MURRAY

Rare vintage inscribed black fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch tan autograph album page, acquired in-person in the 1920s. Great comic stage and silent movie actor Charlie Murray abandoned a longtime vaudeville act with Ollie Mack to join Biograph in 1912, where he was extremely busy in slapstick comedies, including numerous Keystone Kops and Charlie Chaplin flicks. In the 1920s, he transitioned to more substantial character roles, memorable in the title role in the first film adaptation of The Wizard of Oz (1925), White Fang (1925), McFadden's Flats (1927), horror's The Gorilla (1927), The Life of Riley (1927), Do Your Duty (1927), and King of Jazz (1930).
