Brought to Hollywood on the strength of a talent contest, Ralph Bowman didn't change his name to John Archer until after appearing in a handful of films produced between 1938 and 1940. While he was generally tucked amongst the supporting players in such big-budgeters as Guadalcanal Diary (1943) and White Heat (1949), Archer could count on star billing and plenty of screen time in such "B"s as King of the Zombies (1941) and Bowery at Midnight (1942). In the mid-1940s, Archer starred on the weekly radio melodrama The Shadow. At one time married to actress Marjorie Lord, John Archer is the father of 1990s leading lady Anne Archer.
