Biography by Hans J. Wollstein

A swarthy-looking stage actor (The Price, Under Orders) and the husband of stage star Alice Brady (1919-1922), James Crane moonlighted in movies in the late 1910s, appearing in three films with his wife and three opposite another Broadway star, Billie Burke. Spending most of the 1920s on the Broadway stage, Crane returned to films as a character actor after the advent of sound and is probably best remembered for playing the Pharaoh in The Mummy (1932).
