James O. Barrows

James Otis Barrows (March 29, 1855 - December 7, 1925)[2] was an American stage and film actor. He spent much of his adult life in the legitimate theater from the Victorian to Edwardian to Georgian eras.[3] He left the legitimate theatre and spent half a dozen years in vaudeville.[4] In 1919 he began appearing in silent feature films playing elderly roles much like theater colleagues of his generation i.e. Melbourne MacDowell, Ida Waterman, Joseph J. Dowling, Frank Currier and Theodore Roberts. Barrows can be seen in several surviving silent films, his last being the 1925 John Barrymore starrer The Sea Beast completed just before his death.
