A Case of Life-Long Hero Worship
Charles Coburn has been for me a favorite actor and a continuing source of inspiration.His own example and public advice helped me lose a regional accent in boyhood and his recorded work in film and on television has never failed to keep alive in my heart the urge to act and to provide an oratorical strength and purpose when in the classroom and on the amateur stage. I owe him a debt of personal gratitude, and I can only say that I wish I had known him.
Charles Coburn and his memory
- Robert Dunn
When I was a lad in the 50s in LA I read a short story about Charles Coburn that reflects his remarkable mental agility coupled with a bad memory for names. Once, so goes the story, he was having lunch at the Brown Derby in Hollywood with his best friend from high school. Coburn was had a penchant for forgetting names. During the lunch his agent of many years walked into the Derby and up to his table. Coburn stalled with his introduction of his long-time agent as he could not remember his best friend's name. Finally, he remembered the name and started the introductions. Unfortunately, by then he had forgotten his agent's name. By he way, the source of this tale was Coburn himself. I can just visualize the entire episode. An absolutly classic individual.
Irresistable Charles Coburn
- Teresa DeMott
I fell in love with Mr. Coburn while watching "The Devil and Miss Jones." His facial expressions, his voice, his reactions--irresistable!
A Remarkabe Talent
- Roy Bishop
Oh how I miss this era! Mr. Coburn is representative of a depth of talent that is so lacking in Hollywood today! The innuendo is so subtle, the screen writing and direction so well crafted. Yet it still take's a talent such as Mr. Coburn and his Co-Star's to execute this artistry. It seem's so under appreciated today!. Thank You TCM for preserving and reminding us daily what we had and what true art really is! No CGI, No Trick's, No Gimmick's! True ART!
One of my Favorite Actors
I love this man. He is fabulously funny. He truly knows how to act, he makes me laugh, he may have also been known as a comedian. Certainly a fantastic actor. I love him. All of his movies I can watch over and over again. He is great.

In Charles Coburn's bio on this site, it says he entered movies in his sixties in "Boss Tweed"in 1933. This site says he was born in 1877,making him 56 in "Boss Tweed." Let's not rush things.
