Biography | show moreshow less
Charles J. Winninger (1884-1969) is probably best remembered today for his numerous film performances in grandfatherly roles, often played with a roguish twinkle in a wandering eye. His career stretched back into the 19th Century. A part of his family's vaudeville act, the Winninger Family Novelty Company, from an early age, he performed at the Chicago World Fair of 1893 before striking out on his own in 1909. He made his Broadway in 1912 and in movies three years later. In all, Winninger appeared in 16 Broadway shows between 1912 and 1951, including the role of Cap'n Andy in the original production (1927-1929) and first revival (1932) of Show Boat (a role he reprised in the 1936 film adaptation) and over 70 movies and TV shows between 1915 and 1960, including Three Smart Girls (1936), Nothing Sacred (1937), Destry Rides Again (1939) and State Fair (1945), and as Charles Farrell's father on TV's The Charles Farrell Show (1956).
