Biography by Hans J. Wollstein

A graduate of Boston College, Charles A. Logue later became a reporter for the New York World and for years functioned as Mexico correspondent for the New York Tribune. A prolific writer of short stories (The Third Jewel, The Flying Scourge), Logue broke into the burgeoning film industry as a writer of such dramas as Ashes and Embers (1916), starring Pauline Frederick, the propaganda epic My Four Years in Germany (1918), and the serial House of Hate (1918). Logue went on to direct three films in the early 1920s, including Man and Woman (1920), starring Ziegfeld girl Diana Allen, and Tents of Allah (1923), but they were too low-budget to warrant much attention. Penning scores of programmers well into the 1930s (including several of the low-budget "Renfrew" northwest melodramas), Logue is probably best known as the script supervisor on Tod Browning's legendary Dracula (1930).
