Birthplace: Not Available
The son of actor Victor McLaglen, McLaglen cut his teeth working on industrial films and by the early '50s was assistant directing for several directors, including Budd Boetticher and John Ford. By the mid '50s he was helming features, as well as episodes of such television shows as Gunsmoke, Perry Mason, and Have Gun Will Travel. His career got a jump start from John Wayne in the early '60s with the sexist slugfest McLintock!; the two went on to make Hellfighters, The Undefeated, Chisum, and Cahill -- United States Marshall. McLaglen also helmed two offbeat character studies starring James Stewart, Shenandoah and Fools' Parade. A solid director of westerns (Bandolero!, The Last Hard Men) and actioners (Mitchell, The Wild Geese), McLaglen can be more fun spoofing his specialties, as in Something Big and Ffolkes (aka North Sea Hijack). He has worked in television since the mid '70s. McLaglen passed away in 2014 at age 94.
