Item specifics


Offered here is a vintage original 8x10 in. U.S. single-weight portrait still photograph of the popular silent film comedian, CHARLIE MURRAY. The image features an interior studio publicity shot of Mr. Murray wearing a tan suit with a tie and posing in front of a studio backdrop. His name appears in capital letters in the bottom outer white border. This vintage original portrait still photograph is in poor/fair condition only with a very large chip on the top half of the right border which extends into the image; a 1.25 in. diagonal crease with a chip on the bottom right corner; random signs of wear along the bottom edge on the left side near the corner; a 2.25 in. diagonal crease on the top left corner which extends slightly into the image area with a 1.25 in. diagonal crease to the right of this first crease (which also extends into the image area) with a small area of creases, tear and wear in the top outer white border to the right of this crease.

We are pleased to offer free shipping to U.S. customers only on this item.

Though he looked and acted like a true Son of Ireland (one suspected he was born with a clay pipe in his mouth), Charlie Murray was born in Laurel, IN. He began his show business career as a circus performer, later appearing in vaudeville as one-half of the popular Mack and Murray comedy team. Entering films in 1911, he joined Mack Sennett's Keystone troupe the following year, quickly building up a huge following with his slapstick comedy characterizations (at first he was unbilled, identified only as "Hogan"). Alternating between features and two-reelers into the 1920s, he gained a whole new flock of fans when he began appearing in the Cohens and the Kellys series in 1925, playing opposite portly Jewish comedian George Sidney. Murray and Sidney continued to work together well into the early talkie era, at one point co-starring in a group of Columbia two-reelers. Charlie Murray kept busy in character roles until his retirement at age 66; his son, Charlie Murray Jr., also enjoyed a brief Hollywood career.
