Biography

A veteran of musical comedy and vaudeville, American silent-screen comedian Louise Carver used her plain, Midwestern visage to utmost effect in attempting to seduce Harold Lloyd in Somewhere in Turkey (1918), and as the cigar-chomping housekeeper in Harold Langdon's The First 100 Years (1924). Carver's career was mostly taken up with two-reel comedies, but she appeared in feature films as well: The Big Trail (1930) as El Brendel's harridan of a mother-in-law, Riders of the Desert (1932) as Al St. John's wife, and Hallelujah, I'm a Bum (1933) as Chester Conklin's wife. Carver was married to stage and screen comic Tom Murray. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
