In 1954, Earle appeared in Sign of the Pagan and Three Hours to Kill, as well as episodes of Annie Oakley, The Adventures of Falcon and My Little Margie. The acting career of Canadian-born Earle (1882-1972) started on the stage and in vaudeville at the turn of the century and ended on television in 1960. A stage actor who specialized in musical comedy, he debuted on Broadway in 1904's The Triumph of Love. Earle appeared in his first movie in 1914 and soon became one of the Edison Company's first stars, earning starring roles by 1922. Earle was tall, athletic, handsome and a bit of a daredevil; not surprisingly, most of his starring roles were as debonair romantic leads and as second leads in the late silent era and early 1930s. The advent of talkies demoted him to character and bit roles, many of them uncredited. But he managed to keep busy. In fact, by 1960, Earle had amassed a resume with acting credits in over 400 movies and TV shows. Lightly toned, soiled and creased. Form is lightly ripped and has light dents in top edge. Receipt has light dent and nick at top edge and carbon copy marks and was folded once and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
