Biography

George Randolph Scott (1898-1987), born in Orange County, Virginia and raised in North Carolina, began his film career in 1928 with an uncredited role as a foreign serviceman in the comedy Sharpshooters. Scott continued to work as an actor in small roles on both stage and screen, eventually being signed to a seven-year contract with Paramount Pictures in 1932.
With Paramount, Scott made a series of "B" Westerns ( Heritage of the Desert, 1932, The Thundering Herd, 1933, and Man of the Forest, 1933), non-westerns ( Go West, Young Man, 1936), and horror films such as Supernatural (1933.) Although a contract player with Paramount, Scott was permitted to work for other studios on occasion and made four films with RKO Radio Pictures during 1935-1936. These included two musicals which featured his close friend Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers ( Roberta, 1935; Follow the Fleet, 1936.)
Scott began freelancing in 1938 and made numerous films with 20th Century Fox, Universal, Columbia Pictures, and Warner Brothers. In 1943-1944, Scott was a member of the Hollywood Victory Committee, entertaining troops stationed in the Solomon Islands in addition to making war-themed films such as Gung Ho! (1943) and China Sky (1945). Throughout the 1940s through the early 1950s, Scott teamed up with producer Harry Joe Brown and made largely westerns, including Coroner Creek (1948). Other films include Man in the Saddle (1951), and Carson City (1951), both directed by Andre de Toth. Scott's final film appearance came in 1962 in the classic western, Ride the High Country, co-starring Joel McCrea and directed by Sam Peckinpah.
Randolph Scott was married in 1936 to Marion Du Pont, the daughter of William Du Pont, Sr., but the marriage ended just three years later. In 1944, Scott married Patricia Stillman with whom he adopted two children. Patricia was had several, uncredited acting roles in films from 1939-1941. The couple was married for 43 years, until Randolph Scott's death in 1987.
