Back Stage with Shanghai Cobra's Jack Richardson

An interesting side light pops up in the cast credits to The Shanghai Cobra.

Jack Richardson, (1883 - 1957), plays the letter carrier who give Charlie the much needed information on the game of disappearing store fronts.

He also has the distiction of being married to Mabel Richardson. His third wife "had uncredited roles as an extra in many films of the silent era, [and] is believed to be the longest-lived Hollywood actor, having died in 2001 at the age of 110." (www.imdb.com)

Mabel Richardson must have taken her vitamins daily!
