Alexander Kirkland played leads on both the stage and screen. He was born in Mexico City to U.S. citizens and began his career in theater, coming to film in the 1930s. He returned to the stage to act, direct and produce in the '40s and appeared only sporadically in films. With the advent of television, he began writing for live broadcasts. Kirkland left the industry in the 1950s to work as an art dealer. Notorious burlesque dancer Gypsy Rose Lee was his third wife.
