Carl Stockdale

Carl Stockdale also known as Carlton Stockdale (19 February 1874 - 15 March 1953) was one of the longest-working Hollywood veteran actors, with a career dating from the early 1910s. He also made the difficult transition from silent films, to talkies. A native of Worthington, Minnesota, he was in Hollywood as early as 1913 with a small role in Gilbert M. Anderson's Broncho Billy's Last Deed. He remained busy through the 1940s, then his career slowed down. Stockdale was Charlotte Shelby's close friend, he stated on the witness stand that he was with Mrs. Shelby, a major suspect, when William Desmond Taylor was murdered, therefore she could not have killed him.
