~Biography~
A boy soldier during the Boer War, British actor Victor McLaglen later worked as a prizefighter (once
losing to Jack Johnson in six rounds) and a vaudeville and circus performer. He served in World War I as
a captain with the Irish Fusiliers and as provost marshal of Baghdad. In the early '20s he broke into
British films. He soon moved to Hollywood, where he got lead and supporting roles; his basic screen
persona was that of a large, brutish, but soft-hearted man of action. He appeared in many John Ford
films, often as a military man. McLaglen made the transition to sound successfully, and for his work in
Ford's The Informer (1935), he won the Best Actor Oscar. He remained a busy screen actor until the late
'50s. Five of his brothers were also film actors: Arthur, Clifford, Cyril, Kenneth, and Leopold. He was the
father of director Andrew V. McLaglen.
