Biography | show moreshow less
James Barton (1890-1962) was an American vaudevillian, stage performer, and a character actor in films and television. Barton began performing in minstrel shows and burlesque houses throughout the country in 1898. His years of experience working with African American performers led to his becoming one of the first jazz dancers in America. After working with repertory companies in the South and Midwest, he made his Broadway debut in the musical revue The Passing Show of 1919. While appearing on Broadway, Barton also achieved the highest pinnacle of status in vaudeville, headlining at the Palace Theater on Broadway not once but eight times, from March 1928 through April 1932. Barton's other theatre credits include "Sweet and Low" in 1930, "Tobacco Road" in 1933, "Bright Lights" of 1944 (which ran only four performances), "The Iceman Cometh" in 1946, and "Paint Your Wagon" in 1951. Beginning in the silent film era, he appeared in a number of Paramount short subjects in 1929. On television he appeared in such shows as, The Ford Television Theatre, The Kaiser Aluminum Hour, The Rifleman, The Americans, and Frontier Circus.
