Charles Albert Murray (June 22, 1872 – July 29, 1941), was an American film actor of the silent era.

Murray was born in Laurel, Indiana, on June 22, 1872,[1] to Isaac Murray and Martha Ellen "Mollie" Murray (née Sullenburger).

Murray was a comedian in vaudeville and on stage for 20 years, forming the Murray and Mack team,[2] before he began acting in films. His first work in films was for Biograph.[1] His work in films included appearing in The Cohens and Kellys series with George Sidney.[3] He appeared in more than 280 films between 1912 and 1938, starting with film shorts. He also directed five films.

Murray was married to Nellie Bae Hamilton. He died in Los Angeles, California, from pneumonia. For his contribution to motion pictures, decades after his death, he was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 1725 Vine Street.
