Meyers, Charles “Charley”
Charles Meyers “Charley”
From a 1936 Lawlor Journal column “In the Grade School”:
Lois Lee, after a successful “summer-full” of Professional engagements on the Bert Levey Circuit, went to work at Columbia, recording with Grace Moore for the picture “Interlude.” Other Grade-schoolers to work on this picture included Charles Meyer, Milada Rose, Betty Greco, the three Weidler boys, and Gloria Delson.
[Note: The reference to the Bert Levey Circuit refers to a Circuit of Independent Vaudeville Theatres, which operated, as an agent for vaudeville artists and independent theatres. The movie “Interlude” was a working title for a movie released in February 1937 as “When You’re In Love” staring opera singer Grace Moore and Cary Grant. None of the children mentioned are acknowledged in the movie credits. – Alan Simon, for Mar-Ken.org]
From the March 15, 1937 Lawlor Journal:
•ANOTHER LAWLORITE GETS CONTRACT!
Charley Myers, of our Eighth grade, has just been signed up for the Gene Autry-Smiley Burnette Westerns at Republic Studios. Charley appeared on the stage with Autry in San Antonio, his home town, recently, and made a hit with the Cowboy singing star. The Myers boy goes right in to a picture, and then will join Smiley in a personal appearance tour.
Charley got his training from Miss Theda Cox, who is here at the school lining up special classed for Lawlor pupils.
