John Carter (November 26, 1927 – May 23, 2015) was an American actor known in particular for Badlands (1973), Scarface (1983), and The Hoax (2006). He also appeared in the recurring role of police lieutenant John Biddle on the television series Barnaby Jones (1973-1980).
Carter played an historical figure, Stephen F. Austin, in the 1969 episode "Here Stands Bailey" of the syndicated series Death Valley Days, hosted by Robert Taylor not long before Taylor's own death. In the story line, the hardy, cantankerous pioneer James Briton "Brit" Bailey (Paul Fix) and his wife, Hannah (Rosemary DeCamp), make their final settlement in southeastern Texas after having overcome many obstacles over the years. Now they face Austin's order that they leave their land. However, Austin has a change of heart and asks them to stay. Bailey dies with his final wish of interment standing upright facing west, hence his grave marker, "Here Stands Bailey Facing West."
