A former circus and vaudeville performer, American comic actor Charles Dorety enjoyed some success as a Chaplin-imitator for the Fox Sunshine Comedies in the late 1910s. He also worked for other also-ran comedy producers such as Bull's Eye, L-KO, Universal's Rainbow and Century Comedies, and appeared opposite Gene "Fatty" Laymon in a series of two-reel Two Star Comedies produced in the mid-'20s by Mack Sennett. In a screen career that lasted until 1955, Dorety worked with almost all the reigning comedy teams, from Laurel and Hardy (The Hoose-Gow ) to the Three Stooges to Abbott and Costello. With the last, he was one of the title "Kops" in Abbott and Costello Meet the Keystone Kops (1955), despite the fact that he was never a member of the original Sennett corps. Rather appropriately, this nostalgic comedy was to be Dorety's final film.
