Actor Tote Du Crow

Tote Du Crow (also known as George Skyrock or Shyroch) was a film actor and circus performer who acted in many silent films during the early days of Hollywood.


Tote was born in Watsonville, California, to parents of Castilian and French origins. According to some accounts, as children, Tote and his brother Daniel ran away from home to join the circus; other sources say their father apprenticed them out to a circus showman.

Tote Du Crow portrayed Bernardo in the silent Zorro films. Gene Sheldon later popularized this role for Disney in the late 1950s. Sheldon’s depiction of that character was a full-blooded Spaniard.

He played 36 minor roles from 1915 until his death. His last film is The Blue Streak from 1926.
