Biography by Hans J. Wollstein

A busy supporting actor in the silent era, white-haired, stern-looking Paul Everton played in everything from the serial The Romance of Elaine (1915) to Cappy Ricks (1921), in which he appeared as the ill-fated ship's captain. Devoting most of the '30s to stage work, Everton returned to Hollywood late in the decade to play a variety of judges, mayors, senators, governors, and wardens. In between bit parts, he was featured in the continuing role of Townsend, a powerful industrialist, in Columbia Pictures' short-lived Five Little Peppers series from 1939 to 1940.
