Richman, Charles J.


Richman, Charles J.
(1865-1940)
   Chicago-born actor Charles J. Richman rose to leading man status with Augustin Daly's company a mere two years after making his stage debut in 1894. For Daly, he appeared in The Countess Gucki (1896) and won plaudits in both Shakespearean and contemporary roles, after which he played heroic characters for David Belasco in Rose of the Rancho (1906) and The Fighting Hope (1908), as well as Bought and Paid For (1911) under William A. Brady's management. Richman played important roles in Rachel Crothers's A Man's World (1910) and, late in his career, made a successful transition to character roles and was well-received by critics in Strictly Dishonorable (1929) and Biography* (1932).
