Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

This son of Academy Award-winning actor Victor McLaglen learned the craft of directing apprenticing with the likes of John Ford, Budd Boetticher and William A Wellman. Ford had directed his father's Oscar-winning performance in "The Informer" (1935) and given the elder McLaglen new life in the cavalry trilogy ("Fort Apache" 1948, "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon" 1949 and "Rio Grande" 1950), which brought the six-foot-seven-and-one-half-inch Andrew V McLaglen in contact with John Wayne, inaugurating their long association. The actor produced Boetticher's "Bullfighter and the Lady" (1951) and starred in Ford's "The Quiet Man" (1952) and Wellman's "The High and Mighty" (1954) and "Blood Alley" (1955), all with the younger McLaglen as assistant director. The 'Duke' would later star in four pictures helmed by Andrew, beginning with "McLintock!" (1963), sort of a Western "Taming of the Shrew" reteaming him with frequent co-star Maureen O'Hara, and including "The Undefeated" (1969), "Chisum" (1970) and "Cahill, United States Marshall" (1973).
