Berton Churchill

Born: 9 December 1876, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Died: 10 October 1940, New York City, New York, USA

Berton Churchill was a character actor who made the majority of his film appearances in the 1930's, when he was considered to be one of the busiest actors in the busniess. His most famous role may be in the film Stagecoach (1939) playing the embezzling banker Ellsworth Henry Gatewood.

In 1925 Churchill helped found the Masquers Club, which led to him and five other actors, Charles Miller, Grant Mitchell, Ralph Morgan, Alden Gay, and Kenneth Thomson, creating the Screen Actors Guild in 1933.
