Actor Neely Edwards

Neely Edwards (born Cornelius Limbach; September 16, 1883 – July 10, 1965) was an American vaudeville performer and film actor.


Edwards appeared in 174 films between 1915 and 1959. The first was as an unbilled player in a Harold Lloyd short.

In the early 1920s Edwards and his vaudeville partner Edward Flanagan appeared as the “Hall Room Boys” in some of the earliest short films produced by Cohn-Brandt-Cohn Film Sales, which would develop into Columbia Pictures. Of his credited film appearances, about 140 are comedy short subjects, notably the “Nervy Ned” one-reelers made for Universal Pictures from 1922-24, in which he and Bert Roach played a couple of hoboes who typically get into slapstick trouble.

His later career is marked by bit parts and character work. Edwards was married to actress Marguerite Snow. He was born in Delphos, Ohio, and died in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles.
