Biography

Bearing something of a resemblance to Jack Pickford, delicate young leading man Charles Emmett Mack (born McNerney) was a discovery of director D.W. Griffith, who cast him in four of his perhaps lesser films: Dream Street (1921), One Exciting Night (1922), The White Rose (1923), and America (1924), as Charles Montague. Signing with Warner Bros., Mack was being groomed for stardom when he was tragically killed in an automobile accident during the filming of, ironically, My First Auto (1927). Charles Emmett Mack should not be confused with -- but often is -- Charles E. Mack (1887-1934), of the comedy team of Moran & Mack or elderly character actor Charles Mack (1878-1956). ~ Hans J.
