According to his official bio, tall, handsome John Lowell had been a cowboy and a surveyor prior to going on the stage. Mildly popular in Victorian melodramas, Lowell was cast in the William S. Hart mold and followed Hart into films in the late 1910s. But unlike the legendary Western star, John Lowell made his own sagebrush melodramas far away from Hollywood in places like Gloversville, NY, and Oklahoma. In the 1920s, he played supporting roles opposite such mainstream cowboys as Bob Custer, Yakima Canutt, and Art Acord while continuing to produce and star in independent Westerns, often with Native American themes and co-starring his daughter Evangeline Russell, a situation that "added incest to injury," as his wife, the screenwriter L. Case Russell, famously quipped. Retiring at the advent of sound, John Lowell was the father-in-law of screen pioneer J. Stuart Blackton.
