Acted and directed in films from the Selig Polyscope Company and later Vitagraph, becoming one of the top performers in silent westerns. He retired in 1925. He may have come out of retirement in the 1930s to appear in Hopalong Cassidy and other westerns (and we have him listed here as such), but film historian Ephraim Katz claims that is in fact a different William Duncan (1874-1945).
