Early life[edit] McLaglen claimed to have been born in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, although his birth certificate records Stepney

as his true birthplace.[2] His father, Andrew Charles Albert McClaglen, later a bishop of the Free Protestant Episcopal Church

of England,[3] moved the family to South Africa
South Africa
when McLaglen was a child. One of ten siblings, he had eight brothers and a sister. Four of his brothers also became actors: Arthur (1888–1972), an actor and sculptor, and Clifford (1892–1978), Cyril (1899–1987) and Kenneth (circa 1901-1979).[4] Other siblings included Frederick (born circa 1882), Sydney (born circa 1884), Lewis (born circa 1889) and a sister, Lily (born circa 1893). Another brother, Leopold McLaglen (1884-1951), who appeared in one film, gained notoriety prior to World War I as a showman and self-proclaimed world jujutsu champion,[5] who authored a book on the subject.[6] Military service[edit] McLaglen left home at 14 to join the British Army
British Army
with the intention of fighting in the Second Boer War. However, much to his chagrin, he was stationed at Windsor Castle
Windsor Castle
in the Life Guards and was later forced to leave the army when his true age was discovered.[citation needed] Four years later, he moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, where he became a local celebrity,[7] earning a living as a wrestler and heavyweight boxer, with several notable wins in the ring.[8] One of his most famous fights was against heavyweight champion Jack Johnson in a six-round exhibition bout.[9][10] This was Johnson's first bout since winning the heavyweight title from Tommy Burns. Between bouts, McLaglen toured with a circus, which offered $25 to anyone who could go three rounds with him. He also briefly served as a constable in the Winnipeg
Winnipeg
Police Force in 1907.[citation needed] He returned to Britain in 1913 and during the First World War served as a captain (acting) with the 10th Battalion, Middlesex Regiment. Later, he claimed to have served with the Royal Irish Fusiliers. He served for a time as military Assistant Provost Marshal
Assistant Provost Marshal
for the city of Baghdad.[11] He continued boxing, and was named heavyweight champion of the British Army

in 1918.[9] After the war, he continued boxing.[12] Career[edit]

Britain[edit] McLaglen was visiting a sporting club when spotted by a film producer who was looking for a boxer to play the lead in a film, The Call of the Road (1920). Although McLaglen had never acted before he auditioned and got the part.[13] He was in the adventure films: Corinthian Jack (1921), andThe Prey of the Dragon (1921). He followed it with The Sport of Kings (1921). Donald Crisp
Donald Crisp
cast him in The Glorious Adventure (1922)[14][15] and he was in A Romance of Old Baghdad
Baghdad
(1922), Little Brother of God (1922), A Sailor Tramp (1922), The Crimson Circle (1922), The Romany (1922), and Heartstrings (1922).[16] McLaglen played leads in M'Lord of the White Road (1923), In the Blood (1923), The Boatswain's Mate
The Boatswain's Mate
(1923), Women and Diamonds (1924), and The Gay Corinthian (1924). He was in The Passionate Adventure (1924), co written by Alfred Hitchcock, and The Beloved Brute (1924), The Hunted Woman (1925), and Percy (1925).[17] Hollywood[edit] McLaglen's career took a surprise turn in the 1920s when he moved to Hollywood. He became a popular character actor, with a particular knack for playing drunks. He also usually played Irishmen, leading many film fans to mistakenly assume he was Irish rather than English. McLaglen played one of the titular Unholy Three (1925) in Lon Chaney Sr.'s original silent version of the macabre crime drama. McLaglen had a support part in Winds of Chance (1925), directed by Frank Lloyd, then made The Fighting Heart (1925) at Fox, directed by John Ford. Ford would have a major impact on McLaglen's career. McLaglen was in The Isle of Retribution (1925), Men of Steel (1926), and Beau Geste (1926), playing Hank in the latter. What Price Glory? and Stardom[edit]

McLaglen was the top-billed leading man in director Raoul Walsh's First World War classic What Price Glory? (1926) with Edmund Lowe

(1947). McLaglen was back with John Ford

for Fort Apache (1948) with John Wayne. It was very much a support part, as a cavalry sergeant, but so well received that McLaglen basically reprised it in the other two films in the Ford-Wayne "cavalry trilogy": She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (1949) and Rio Grande (1950). McLaglen was later nominated for another Oscar, this time for an Best Supporting Actor for his role opposite John Wayne

Toward the end of his career, McLaglen made several guest appearances on television, particularly in Western series such as Have Gun, Will Travel and Rawhide. The episodes in which McLaglen guest-starred were both directed by his son, Andrew V. McLaglen, who later became a film director who frequently directed John Wayne.[21] He went to Italy for Gli Italiani sono matti and had a good part in Sea Fury (1958), shot in England with Stanley Baker.[citation needed] Activism[edit] In 1933, he founded the California Light Horse Regiment, which included a "riding parade club, a polo-playing group and a precision motorcycle contingent". He described it in a press interview as promoting "Americanism". He said it was organized to fight communists and others "opposed to the American ideal", both inside and outside the country. McLaglen was attacked by some on the left as fascist, which he denied. He said he was a "patriot of the good old-fashioned American kind."[22] Personal life[edit]

In 1935, McLaglen spent a reported $40,000 to build his own stadium near Riverside Drive and Hyperion Avenue, near Griffith Park

River flood of 1938 seriously damaged the stadium, and it fell into disuse thereafter.[24][25] In 1941, he was selected as the grand marshal of the Clovis Rodeo parade in Clovis, California.[26] Victor McLaglen
