His brother was Dan Du Cote, who became a circus clown. As children, the pair ran away from their Watsonville, California, home to join the circus.[1] Tote Du Crow also gained fame as a circus clown before he became an actor.[2]

Du Crow portrayed Bernardo in the silent Zorro films. Gene Sheldon later popularized this role for Disney in the late 1950s.

He played 36 minor roles from 1915 until his death. His last film is The Blue Streak from 1926.
