Mini Bio (1)
Carl was used in Micheaux's most important early films, "The Exile," "Veiled Aristocrats," "Ten Minutes to Live," and "The Girl From Chicago," which all are available. In these films Carl's character's were always involved in unfortunate incidents usually regarding someone else he intervene to help and his cool, calm, pleasant, intelligent demeanor always made a happy ending. Only in one movie did he do wrong but he only did wrong because wrong was done to him but Carl is one who movie audiences are willing to forgive. Carl really introduced a new way of acting and new image of a Black man on screen that Hollywood wouldn't dare develop.
Carl Mahon is another talent who fans of Black Cinema would like to know more about. However, his talents still live on for movie watchers to enjoy.
