Hailing from Illinois, young silent actor Charles Morton was already a veteran trouper when signed to a contract with Fox in 1927. Female audiences first discovered the handsome youth opposite the studio's leading flapper, Madge Bellamy, in Colleen (1927), one of the era's many comedy-dramas with a decided influence of blarney. Morton was one of the Four Sons (1928), fighting World War I on opposite sides in John Ford's sadly lost anti-war drama, and a member of the ultimately tragic circus troupe in F.W. Murnau's near-classic Four Devils (1928). Sound, unfortunately, had an ill affect on Morton's career and he was playing bit parts by 1935.
