Born Howard Harold Ravenscroft, Roy Barcroft appeared in over 300 films for Republic between 1937 and 1957. In each film, the hefty actor usually sported a dark mustache and wore the typical dark hat of the bad guy. Virtually all his films were low-budget Westerns and serials. After his B Western days, Barcroft found work in television Westerns and feature films. His best work was some of his last—Bandolero! (1968) and Monte Walsh (1970).
