Director Andrew McLaglen

Andrew McLaglen

Director Andrew McLaglen is probably best known for his association with John Wayne.  His dad Victor starred with Wayne in John Ford’s cavalry trilogy. Young McLaglen helmed five of the Duke’s movies, including McClintock!, Chisum, and The Undefeated.  And he got his start serving as an assistant director to John Ford on The Quiet Man.

Early in his career, McLaglen made his mark on the small screen.  He directed 96 episodes of Gunsmoke and 116 episodes of Have Gun—Will Travel—more than any other director of those series.
