Charlie King in the 1930s.

(From Old Corral collection)

The above still shows a rather slim Ken Maynard and a rather slim Charlie King in a scene from FIGHTING THRU (Tiffany, 1930). Looks like Charlie is wearing a "hero's shirt".

Can't remember King without his moustache? Above - Bob Steele is about to chat with the great screen baddie in THE FIGHTING CHAMP (Monogram, 1932). Crop / blowup below of clean shaven Charlie.

Above from L-to-R are Frank Yaconelli, Ken Maynard and Charlie King in a scene from Maynard's THE STRAWBERRY ROAN (Universal, 1933). Charlie was a good guy in this, portraying a saddle pal to Maynard.

Above are Jean Porter and Charlie (as henchman 'Blackie Black') in the non-western INSIDE INFORMATION (Stage and Screen, 1934) which starred Rex Lease. This is the earlier Jean Porter who did some silents and 1930s films ... and not to be confused with the vivacious, dancin' Jean Porter who worked in about a half dozen westerns (including some with Autry and Rogers) as well as dozens of 1940s and 50s films.
