Carl Stockdale also known as Carlton Stockdale (February 19, 1874 – March 15, 1953) was one of the longest-working Hollywood veteran actors, with a career dating from the early 1910s. He also made the difficult transition from silent films to talkies.

A native of Worthington, Minnesota, he was in Hollywood as early as 1913 with a small role in Gilbert M. Anderson's Broncho Billy's Last Deed. He remained busy into the 1940s. His last film was released in 1943.

Connection to the Murder of William Desmond Taylor[edit]

Stockdale was a close friend of Charlotte Shelby. He testified on the witness stand that he was with Mrs. Shelby, a major suspect in the murder of William Desmond Taylor, and therefore she could not have killed him.
