Carroll performed in several small roles in films under his original name until 1935, when he first used the name John Carroll in Hi, Gaucho!. He appeared in several Western films in the 1930s, including the role of Zorro in Zorro Rides Again in 1937. He was the male lead in the Marx Brothers' Western comedy "Go West" in 1940.
Carroll worked steadily through the mid-1950s, but his work began to fade out in the latter half of the decade. He did play a memorable role in the 1957 Budd Boetticher western Decision at Sundown as Tate Kimbrough, the evil nemesis of Randolph Scott. His last role was in Ride a Pink Car in 1974.
