I think traditionally, the problem was that Charles resume requires a further degree of study as opposed to someone with a flashy record and loads of carisma, in order to better appreciate his accomplishments.
His record from 1946-1951 is something else. His grace, skill and ability on film is what wins me over to Charles though
