Jack Perrin was an American actor who began acting in 1915 at age 19. He is best known for appearing in low-budget Western films throughout the 1930s. Though Perrin once seemed to be on the way to stardom, he was held back by various career woes. For example, in 1932, Perrin sued film producer Robert J. Horner who owed Perrin $1475 for the actor's work in five different films. Despite such setbacks, Perrin continued to appear in small film and television roles until he retired in 1961. He died six years later in Los Angeles.
