African American actor Charles Moore was sometimes billed as Charles R. Moore. In films from 1929, Moore played a variety of supporting roles and was evidently a favorite of writer/director Preston Sturges, as he appeared in four of Sturges' films, delivering one of the funniest single lines in 1941's The Palm Beach Story (to repeat the line out of context would kill the joke). Unfortunately, Charles Moore's skills as a dancer seldom got a workout during his 25-year screen career. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
