Bob Custer (October 18, 1898 – December 27, 1974) was an American film actor who appeared in over 50 films, mostly Westerns, between 1924 and 1937,[1] including The Fighting Hombre, Arizona Days, The Last Roundup, The Oklahoma Kid, Law of the Rio Grande, The Law of the Wild and Ambush Valley. Using his original name Raymond Glenn, the actor also appeared in non-Western movies, including the 1927 film The Return of Boston Blackie as the title character.[2]

Custer was born Raymond Glenn[3] in Kentucky's capital city, Frankfort and attended the University of Kentucky.

Having obtained a degree in engineering, he became a building inspector in Los Angeles, after leaving his acting career, and eventually became chief building inspector in the nearby seaside city of Newport Beach.

Custer died of a heart attack in another nearby seaside city, Torrance at the age of 76.
