Charles Douglas "Turkey Egg" Greer (May 21, 1921 – January 6, 2016) was an American child actor.

Career and war service

Greer was a semi-regular actor in Our Gang between 1930 and 1932, but also appeared in some feature films besides the gang. He often appeared in roles as a tough kid. Born in Canada, he moved with his family to Glendale, California in 1924. He began working in the movies at age seven after winning a freckle contest. His freckles earned him the name "Turkey Egg" by Our Gang director Robert F. McGowan.[1]

After his retirement from movie business in 1934, Greer founded a successful company for laboratory furniture and supply company. During World War II, was one of the first members of the 10th Mountain Division Ski Troops at Camp Hale, Colorado. After finishing training, he was transferred to inactive duty to work at Lockheed for a specific job just before his outfit was to head overseas to the Italian Alps. He later discovered that every officer in his company had been either killed or wounded in the first three days of battle. He was honorably discharged on March 31, 1946.[2][3][1]

Other

Greer was also a magician and member of the Magic Castle Club.[1] In his later years, Greer was also interviewed in some documentaries about Our Gang.

Personal life

He was preceded in death by his wife, Doris Greer (died 1990), and their only child, daughter, Mrs. Diane Welton; and a grandson, Wesley McCall. At the time of his death at age 94, Greer was survived by three grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.[4]
