Well, I’ll Be Dog Gone! . . . Murder in the Mansion

Spoiler Alert. The final words of this murder mystery are: “The lovers drove off into the morning sun.” Getting there will take some doing for our private detective mystery writer, including four dead bodies and two green eyes. But before we begin, did you ever wonder who the male actor was that has been the leading man in the most number of movies?

Humphry Bogart may have been the star in the greatest number of notable movies, but was not the leading man in the most number of movies. Not Clark Gable, not John Barrymore, not Marlon Brando, James Cagney, or Charlie Chaplin. No, the male actor that has starred in the greatest number of Hollywood movies is probably a fellow that would never come to mind.

Our murder mystery opens with a grand masquerade party at the mansion of a very wealthy and very grouchy old man. After the third dance, a woman goes upstairs looking for the host, and discovers his body crumpled on the floor of a closet, still in his Chinese masquerade costume, including a mask with two green glass eyes.

When the cops arrive, the lead inspector discovers that one of the guests is a famous murder mystery author. Charles Starrett plays the part of famous author Michael Tracy, an amateur sleuth who will help the cops unravel the mystery.

Charles Starrett came from a wealthy family, and in 1926 while starring on the Dartmouth football team, he was hired to be in a football scene in a silent movie, and the acting bug kept him busy until he decided to quit the movie business at the age of 48 to live a life of wealthy leisure and travel. He is notable for playing the part of the Durango Kid in 65 western movies, and that would be the record for the most movies starring the same leading actor as the same leading character, if William Boyd had not starred as Hopalong Cassidy in 66 movies.

Charles Starrett does hold the title of being the leading man in more movies than any other actor before or since, headlining in 130 motion pictures. Not bad for a fellow that only worked for twenty-five years. If you want to see his list of movies that you can watch on my site, or the list of any actor that you might be interested in after watching a movie here, just click on the actor’s name in the list of cast members under every movie and you will be magically taken to a list of links to all of that actor’s movies on the website. But before you take that journey, pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
