Barton MacLane (December 25, 1902—January 1, 1969) was an American actor. Born in Columbia, South Carolina, he went to Wesleyan University, where he was an exceptional American football player. His first movie role, The Quarterback (1926), was a result of his ability. He then went to the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and afterwards he performed on Broadway and had small roles in films. In 1932, he wrote the play Rendezvous. He sold it to Arthur Hopkins, and its success got him a contract with Warner Bros.. He appeared in some 200 films, mainly at Warner Bros. most often as a heavy, typically portraying a gangster bully or mean western outlaw. On television, he is best known for the role of General Peterson on I Dream of Jeannie. Because of his death, late episodes of that show have (instead) General Schaeffer, played by Vinton Hayworth. In 1939 he married actress Charlotte Wynters. From the 1940s until his death, he maintained a cattle ranch in eastern Madera County, California, where he made his home when not acting. He died on January 1, 1969, in Santa Monica, California. He has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6719 Hollywood Boulevard.
