Edward J. Ratcliffe (10 March 1863 – 28 September 1948) was an English actor of stage and screen. He had an established stage career behind him when he came to films in 1915. He then spent nearly twenty years before the cameras before making his last film in 1933. He can be seen in many surviving silent and sound films. In the early Warner Brothers sound extravaganza The Show of Shows he plays Henry VI in the excerpted vignette from that play opposite John Barrymore's Richard III.
Ratcliffe played Theodore Roosevelt on at least three occasions in films.
He was born in and died in the same years as fellow Englishman character actor C. Aubrey Smith.
New York barman Patrick Duffy claimed Ratcliffe brought the highball from England to the U.S. in 1894.
