John Sutton started out playing minor roles in action and adventure films until he hit his career's peak in the 1940s with major parts in swashbucklers. Often he filled in for bigger stars serving in the armed forces during World War II. His first major co-starring role was as Lord Edward Crewe in "Hudson's Bay," starring Gene Tierney, an elaborate story of English colonialism in Canada. In 1943, Sutton took one of the few leading roles of his career in the war drama "Tonight We Raid Calais" and played a relatively minor role in the more major film "Jane Eyre," starring Orson Welles. In the latter half of the 1940s, Sutton stayed more focused on derring-do, with a costarring role in "Captain from Castile," starring Tyrone Power as a Spanish officer aiding Cortes's invasion of Mexico; and "The Three Musketeers," as the Duke of Buckingham, an ally of d'Artagnan. In the 1950s, Sutton's film career significantly subsided, though he made several one-off and recurring appearances on television--often in adaptations of classic literature, Westerns, and adventure-filled period pieces.
