Life Story of Malcolm McDowell

Malcolm John Taylor was born on June 13, 1943 in Leeds, England, to working-class parents Edna (McDowell), a hotelier, and Charles Taylor, a publican. His father was an alcoholic. Malcolm hated his parents' ways. His father was keen to send his son to private school to give him a good start in life, so Malcolm was packed off to boarding school at age 11. He attended the Tunbridge Boarding School and the Cannock House School in Eltham, Kent. At school, he was beaten with the slipper or cane every Monday for his wayward behavior. Whilst at school, he decided that he wanted to become an actor; it was also around this time that his love for race cars began. He attended the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts (LAMDA) to study acting. Meanwhile, he worked at his parents' pub but lost his job when the pub went bankrupt, his father drinking all the profits. He then had a variety of jobs, from coffee salesman to messenger.

His first big-screen role was in Poor Cow (1967), although his two-minute scene was ultimately cut from the completed film. Soon after, he caught the attention of director Lindsay Anderson who cast him in the role of a rebellious student in his film...

Was the first well-known actor to appear non-animated and in the flesh for South Park (1997) because he is one of Trey Parker's favorite actors and he was specifically requested. He appeared in a South Park parody of Charles Dickens' novel "Great Expectations", playing A British Person (2000).

In an interview, he said that a magazine named him "King of Punk" after his appearance in A Clockwork Orange (1971). This is probably because of the punk references that appears in the movie, such as the droogies costume style.

When he went to meet with Stanley Kubrick for the first time, he had little knowledge of film and confused him with Stanley Kramer. In preparation, McDowell's friend and mentor, Lindsay Anderson, showed him all of Kubrick's films from Paths of Glory (1957) to 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968).

Malcolm McDowell and Anna Bjorn in Get Crazy (1983)

As a schoolboy, Malcolm was so bored having to listen to long, tedious speeches by minor local dignitaries at official school functions, when he became a star, he took his revenge. Asked to give the keynote speech at Cannock School's annual Open Day in 1969, he flew all the way from the United States to attend. Before a packed assembly, he simply announced "I hereby pronounce this Open Day open" and sat down.

He listened to recordings of H.G. Wells to prepare for the role in Time After Time (1979). According to McDowell, Wells' voice was high-pitched and Cockney-accented so he decided not to imitate his voice.

Malcolm McDowell in Im Visier des Falken (1970)

Despite the fact that they played enemies in Blue Thunder (1983), both Roy Scheider and Malcolm McDowell became very good friends during the production. As he would later state at various science fiction conventions, they enjoyed working together so much, that they could not leave each other alone. After Scheider passed away, a very saddened McDowell was unable to attend Scheider's funeral because of a film commitment that he could not get away from (much to his dismay). As a result, he immediately ordered flowers and sent a letter of condolence to Scheider's family.

Malcolm McDowell in Der Mann, der niemals starb (1994)

During the Ludivico scene in A Clockwork Orange (1971), McDowell's eyes were clamped open using a surgical device for eye surgery. The doctor applying eyedrops in the scene was an actual physician who was on hand in case of an injury. Nevertheless, McDowell's cornea was accidentally scratched as a result of the eye clamping and he suffered temporary blindness.
