This is an original press photo. CHARLES CHIC SALE
Charles "Chic" Sale (August 25, 1885, - November 7, 1936), was an American actor and vaudevillian. Named at birth Charles Partlow Sale, he was a son of Frank Orville and Lillie Belle (Partlow) Sale, and brother of writer, actress Virginia Sale-Wren.
In 1920, after a tour wherein he played "rural parts," he was engaged by Christie Studios on Gower Street in Los Angeles. According to Grace Kingsley in the Jan. 28 edition of the Los Angeles Times, page II11, "It now comes to light that Chic Sale, appearing at the Orpheum this week, will as soon as his present tour is finished, about the middle of next month, return to town in the Capacity of a Christie star. Mr. Sale's first photoplay will be a five-reeler, adapted from Irvin S. Cobb's 'The Smart Aleck,' after which he will be starred in other well-known stories suitable to his talents." The item goes on to mention that Charles Christie, business head of the Christie studio, entered into a contract with Exceptional Pictures to produce the Sale film, to be distributed through Robertson-Cole, and notes Sales' occasional appearances in the Ziegfeld Follies and the Shubert Winter Garden shows. The movie was eventually named "His Nibs," and co-starred Colleen Moore. Chic played many of the parts himself, the film being a spoof of the sort of "hick," backwater characterizations he specialized in.(WIKIPEDIA)Photo measures 8.25 x 11inches. Photo is dated 05-05-1932.
