Biography

Jack Baxley (born Andrew Jackson Baxley; 1884–1950) was an American character actor of the 1930s and 1940s. He appeared in over 100 films over his career, many in unnamed, un-credited roles. Occasionally he would receive small, named roles, and rarely a featured role.

He made his film debut at the age of 47 in the 1930 Greta Garbo classic, Anna Christie, as a barker at Coney Island. It would be a character he portrayed frequently in films. Some of his more prominent roles included: Mathews in International Crime (1938); Judge Culpepper in Mr. Celebrity (1941); Sheriff Verner in Gallant Lady (1942); and in the featured role of Bill White in The Kid from Gower Gulch (1949), in one of his final performances.
