5a. Charles Ogle (recurring in-jokes and threads - alt.movies.silent)

Charles Ogle (1865-1940) was an actor who started with Edison in
1909. His most celebrated role is that of the Frankenstein monster
in 1910 in what is considered to be the first screen adaptation of
Mary Shelley's novel. He was a prolific character actor in silent
film.

Why is Ogle mentioned so frequently on the silent film newsgroup?
The answer is shrouded in mystery. It may be because the name "Ogle"
sounds humorous in a vague sort of way.

Jeremy Bond Shepherd <jbond@netcom.com> has shed some light on the
Ogle phenomenon on the newsgroup:

I think it's because of Firezine's numerous Ogle
references. He used to chime in every time a film
was being discussed in which Ogle had even the
smallest walkon. A most endearing habit.

The Silents Majority Web site has an Ogle page:
