He was born in Edinburgh, Scotland.

His first talkie Kitty (1929) was a successful production. His last role in the movie Superman (1978).

His son Jonathan Croall is writing a book about the screen idols of the 1920s, including John Stuart. In a Guardian article 11 February 2012, "My dad, the silent film star", Jonathan Croall writes a tribute to his father, which offers much personal and professional background.[2][3]
