Charles "Charley" Sylber (18th July, 1896 – 11th February, 1967) was an American movie actor, technical consultant and author. He is perhaps best known as the owner and operator of the Magic House of Charles magic shop, based originally in Hollywood, later moving to Riverside, California.
Born Charles Edgar Silber, Jr., in Cincinnati, Ohio, he changed his performing name to Charles Sylber, after a Numerology reading suggested greater success in a performing career with this name.
The Internet Movie Database lists five movies that Sylber appeared in as an actor. He claimed a total of 70 movies in which he consulted on magic scenes during his Hollywood career.
