According to Laura Wagner's article on Charles for Films of the Golden Age (Spring, 2015), the handsome actor was too tall and lean to make a strong impression in films. Nothing came of his one big film role in Dancing Pirate (1936) or his second and last feature Swing Hostess (1944) opposite Martha Tilton. See more »
