Actor Charles Meredith had the requisite good looks to become a popular silent film leading man. Tall, dark and exceedingly good-looking with distinctive high-parted hair, he played opposite Blanche Sweet, Mary Miles Minter, Florence Vidor, Katherine MacDonald, and other top stars of the day in both romantic drama and comedies. In 1924, he abandoned his film career for fulfillment on the stage, not returning to the cinema until 1947 wherein he played a number of small roles with an upstanding, prideful nature (justices, commissioners, reverends, admirals, etc.) Toward the end of his career, he turned to TV as well, notably as Secretary Drake in the Rocky Jones, Space Ranger (1954) series. He died at age 70 in 1964.
