Lost in the Arctic (1928)
~Biography~
specialized in light comedy roles, often playing cads and bounders. After a brief stab at directing with
1921's Maid of the West, he found his true niche as a mustachioed, oily-haired, jack-booted heavy.
During the 1920s he appeared in support of everyone from Fatty Arbuckle to Rin Tin Tin. Talkies
reduced him to such bit parts as the "Assistant Exhausted Ruler" in Laurel & Hardy's Sons of the Desert
(1933) and Senator Albert in Frank Capra's Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939). One of his few roles of
consequence in the 1930s was the principal villain in the 1933 serial Tarzan the Fearless. Philo
McCullough remained active until 1969, when he appeared with several other silent-screen veterans in
They Shoot Horses, Don't They?
