Onscreen from the early 1910s, veteran stage actor William Lowery became a special favorite of Douglas Fairbanks who used him often, most notably as the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood (1922). Some of the sheriff's darker side crept into Lowery's other work and he was equally convincing playing crooked ranch foremen or cattle rustlers in scores of budget Westerns of the 1920s. Lowery retired from screen acting at the changeover to sound.
