Gnarly looking character actor Charles Waldron began appearing in films in 1915. Throughout most of his screen career, Waldron was cast as saintly looking men of the cloth: vicars, bishops, padres, and the like. Toward the end of his life he began receiving meatier movie assignments, often playing elderly characters forced to face the consequences of a misspent life. Humphrey Bogart fans will remember Charles Waldron as the desiccated General Sternwood in the opening scenes of Bogart's The Big Sleep (1946).
