Roy Barcroft Facts
During his years as a freelance, Barcroft became such an asset as the villian in low budget westerns that in 1943 Republic signed him to an exclusive ten year contract.

Barcroft patterned his screen persona after Harry Woods, one of the movies' greatest villains. He even tried to imitate Woods' voice. Barcroft's on-screen voice was different from the one he always used when in front of the camera. (Revealed by his friend Clayton Moore in his autobiography, "I Was That Masked Man")

Considerable confusion exists concerning Barcroft's birthplace. Most sources cite Weeping Water, Texas, USA, while others cite Crab Orchard Nebraska, USA. However, Weeping Water, Texas does not exist. But Weeping Water, Nebraska, is quite near Crab Orchard, Nebraska, and it is likely that Barcroft was born in Weeping Water, Nebraska, USA, and raised in nearby Crab Orchard, Nebraska.
