Roy Barcroft Facts
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.

Although Barcroft's birth name is usually given as Howard Clifford Ravenscroft, both the California Death Index and the 1910, 1920, and 1930 U.S. Census list him as Howard H. Ravenscroft.

Barcroft was such a fixture in low budget westerns that as soon as his face appeared on screen, every kid in the audience knew who the bad guy was. Of course, it took the good guy 60 minutes to figure it out.
