Roy Barcroft Facts
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 claimed that his favorite role was as the reincarnated pirate Captain Mephisto in the non-western Republic serial Manhunt of Mystery Island (1945). Also among his favorites were the serials The Purple Monster Strikes (1945) and Haunted Harbor (1944).

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.
