A heavyweight presence during most of the silent era, 6'2," 225-pound, black-haired, mustachioed Jack Curtis entered films in 1915 after a varied career in musical comedy and vaudeville, where, according to at least one report, he directed his own shows. Usually cast as a dyed-in-the-wool villain, Curtis could also play the heroine's kindly father and was busiest in the 1920s. Perhaps most memorable as Gibson Gowland's father in Greed (1925), Curtis continued his screen career unabated well into the sound era. The roles got increasingly smaller but the veteran actor hung in there and played his fair share of bartenders, lawmen, and store clerks. He was a printer's devil in Citizen Kane (1941) and a card player in his last identifiable film appearance, The Exile (1947).
