Charles Gemora

Born: 15 June 1903 in Negros, Philippines
Died: 19 August 1961, Hollywood, California, USA

Charles Gemora was very rarely out of work during the period where he often donned a gorilla costume. He can be 'seen' in many films during the 1930s and 1940s wearing the comedic and unconvincing costume. Charles was also a respected make-up artist.
