  • Hailing from Australia despite his distinctive, clipped British accent, C. Montagu Shaw (the initial stood for "Charles") appeared in countless Hollywood pictures from 1926-1953, almost always cast as distinguished types. In his later years, Shaw made serials his specialty, appearing as the Clay King in Flash Gordon's Trip to Mars (1938), Dr. Malcolm in Daredevils of the Red Circle (1939), Professor Scott, the heroine's father, in The Mysterious Doctor Satan (1940), Dr. Huer in Buck Rogers (1940), and Dr. Nicholson in G-Men vs. the Black Dragon (1943). Shaw's most notable contribution to the genre, however, came in Zorro's Fighting Legion (1939) as Pablo, the dignified council member who turns out to be the nefarious Don del Oro, a megalomaniac hiding behind a hideous mask. Shaw retired in the early 1950s and died at the Motion Picture Country House and Hospital in Woodland Hills, CA.
