|Also Known As:||Macdonald Carey||Died:||March 21, 1994|

|Birth Place:||Sioux City, Iowa, USA||Profession:||Cast ... actor singer|
Tall, approachable American leading man and character actor who, after enjoying radio success in the late 1930s and Broadway success in "Lady in the Dark" (1941), moved to Hollywood in the 40s and made the extremely enjoyable Anthony Mann "B" film, "Dr. Broadway" (1942). Like George Brent a decade earlier, Carey provided amiable, gentlemanly support to female stars who were generally more dominant and dynamic, including Rosalind Russell, Paulette Goddard, Betty Hutton, Betty Grable, Anne Baxter, Shelley Winters and Claudette Colbert. The leathery, relaxed Carey continued into the 50s, appearing mostly in such modest Westerns as "The Great Missouri Raid" (1951), "Outlaw Territory" (1953) and "Man or Gun" (1958).
