Robert Barrat Overview:

Character actor, Robert Barrat, was born Robert Harriot Barrat on Jul 10, 1889 in New York City, NY. Barrat died at the age of 80 on Jan 7, 1970 in Hollywood, CA .


Robert Barrat was often seen in roles as imposing, sometimes harsh figures of authority, but he was equally at ease as strong, nasty villains or benign, pipe-smoking officials. He was a resident at Warners, through the 1930s, ("Captain Blood" 1935, "The Adventures of Mark Twain" 1945), and he had some spectacular fights on screen, most notably the one with Joel McCrea in "Union Pacific" (1939).
