Burly American comic actor Glen Cavender is perhaps best remembered for playing the Union spy, Captain Anderson, in Keaton's masterpiece The General (1927), but the ex-vaudevillian began his screen career with the St. Louis Motion Picture Company (which, despite its name, was located in Los Angeles) in the early 1910s. Acknowledged as one of the original Keystone Kops, Cavender later directed the Sennett stock company in such farces as The Lion and the Girl (1916) and The Scoundrel's Toll (1916), as well as The Sheriff (1918) for Joseph Schenck's Comique, starring "Fatty" Arbuckle and Buster Keaton. Returning to acting in the 1920s, Cavender appeared mainly in two-reelers produced by comedy veteran Joe Rock but he did turn up in a few feature films, including the Buck Jones Western Straight from the Shoulder (1921). By the 1930s, however, Cavender was reduced to playing unbilled bit parts. He retired around 1941.
