Biography

American silent screen actor Malcolm McGregor starred as the young whaling captain in Ben Ames Williams' All the Brothers Were Valiant (1923), perhaps the highlight of a busy career that mostly found the handsome, clean-cut actor supporting such glamorous female stars as Corinne Griffith, Florence Vidor, and Evelyn Brent. Like so many of his contemporaries, McGregor's career quickly waned after the changeover to sound and he was reduced to playing second fiddle to Bela Lugosi in the Mascot serial The Whispering Shadow (1932). Retired after playing a gangster in a low-budget screen version of radio's Special Agent K-7 (1937), cGregor reportedly died from burns suffered in an accident in his Hollywood home. ~ Hans J.
