Biography

American actor of silent films. A native of Albany, New York, the son of a railroad engineer, he began a career in government, serving as confidential stenographer and then secretary to Governor William Sulzer of New York. Sulzer’s impeachment and removal from office left Crane without a job, and he obtained a commission in the U.S. Navy. While stationed at the Navy’s San Diego, California submarine base, Crane met a number of visiting movie personalities including¬†Allan Dwan, who suggested the handsome young officer try the movies. Following the war, he did so, making his debut in 1919. He gained work as a leading man, but more frequently played darker roles. An attack of pleurisy led him to a rest cure in the resort of Saranac Lake, New York. Pneumonia developed and he died three months later, aged 37.
