Earl Dwire (October 3, 1883 – January 16, 1940) was an American character actor who appeared in more than 150 movies between 1921 and his death in 1940. Noted for his almost frightening long face, Dwire worked mainly as a villain in westerns, including Riders of Destiny (1933) with John Wayne in the first singing cowboy movie and The Trail Beyond (1934) opposite Wayne, Noah Beery, Sr., and Noah Beery, Jr. He also appeared in Bob Steele vehicles such as Alias John Law (1935).
