Charles Eldridge (September 25, 1854 – October 29, 1922) was an American stage and screen actor of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In the film industry he appeared in over 100 films, although the majority of those were film shorts. He began on the stage during the 1870s, and appeared in at least one Broadway play, Charles Frohman's 1899 production of Because She Loved Him So.[1] His first appearance in film was in a 1910 short, The Legacy, in which he starred.[2] His first appearance in a feature film was in The Strange Story of Sylvia Gray.[3] In addition to the over 100 shorts he was in, Eldridge appeared in 27 feature films between 1914 and 1922.[4] In his roles in full-length films, he would usually appear in a supporting role, although occasionally be given a lead, as in 1917's Polly of the Circus,[5] 1920's Broken Hearts,[6] and 1922's Ashamed of Parents.[7] Polly of the Circus was notable for being the first film released by Goldwyn Pictures, which was shot in Fort Lee, New Jersey, mostly at rented space at the studios owned by Universal Studios.[8]

His final screen appearance was in a supporting role in the 1922 film, No Trespassing, which starred Irene Castle of the famous dancing team, Vernon and Irene Castle.[9] No Trespassing was released on June 11, 1922, and Eldridge died soon after, on October 29, 1922, in New York City.

Eldridge was married to actress Addie Dunant for 32 years until her death in 1914.[10]
