Charlie Poole at his home in Spray, North Carolina - 1925


No one who met Charlie Poole - no matter how brief the encounter or distant the occasion - could ever forget him.
This lovable, charming rascal left in his wake enough stories, mostly humorous, for a double feature matinee,
complete with newsreel, short subject, and a couple cartoons.
