Edward Jobson (February 29, 1860 – February 7, 1925) was an American actor of stage and silent film. He started in silent films in his fifties. He had a sour yet sad bulldog demeanor and can be spotted in several surviving silent films. In The Delicious Little Devil (1919) he plays Rudolph Valentino's father, though the two actors looked nothing alike. He died at the beginning of 1925.[1]
