Life Story of Randolph Scott

Handsome American leading man who developed into one of Hollywood's greatest and most popular Western stars. Born to George and Lucy Crane Scott during a visit to Virginia, Scott was raised in Charlotte, North Carolina in a wealthy family. After service with the U.S. Army in France in World War I, he attended Georgia Institute of Technology but, after being injured playing football, transferred to the University of North Carolina, from which he graduated with a degree in textile engineering and manufacturing. He discovered acting and went to California, where he met Howard Hughes, who obtained an audition for him for Cecil B. DeMille's Dynamite (1929), a role which went instead to Joel McCrea. He was hired to coach Gary Cooper in a Virginia dialect for The Virginian (1929) and played a bit part in the film. Paramount scouts saw him in a play and offered him a contract. He met Cary Grant, another Paramount contract player, on the set of Hot Saturday (1932) and the pair soon moved in together. Their on-and-off living arrangement would last until 1942. Scott married and divorced wealthy heiress Marion DuPont in the late 1930's. He moved into leading roles at Paramount, although...

Randolph Scott and Jack La Rue in To the Last Man (1933)

From 1932-44 he lived with Cary Grant in a beach house known jocularly as Bachelor Hall. The close friendship between Scott and Grant and the steady stream of women into and out of Bachelor Hall fed rumor mills for years. Many believed that Grant and Scott were lovers, and the women were arranged by the film studios for public effect.

Randolph Scott and Martin Good Rider in Fräulein Winnetou (1939)

Remained close friends with Cary Grant until the day he died. When he heard of his old friend's death, he reportedly put his head in his hands and wept. He himself would die a little over 2 months afterwards.

Randolph Scott, John Archer, Janis Carter, etc.

His image from his Westerns as an upright, outstanding sheriff or cowboy was so strong that it was paid homage to in Mel Brooks' classic comedy Blazing Saddles (1974). When the African-American sheriff asks the reluctant townspeople for their help in fighting the bad guys, they unanimously reject him. However, when he says, "You'd do it for Randolph Scott!", a heavenly chorus in the background sings "Randolph Scott!", and the townspeople change their minds.
