Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Duncan Macrae (20 August 1905 - 23 March 1967) was one of the leading Scottish actors of his generation. He worked mainly as a stage actor, with only a limited number of screen appearances. He was born at 118 Kirkland Street, Maryhill, Glasgow, the fourth of the six children of James Macrae, a sergeant in the Glasgow police force, and his wife, Catherine Graham. He attended Allan Glen's School and matriculated in the engineering faculty at Glasgow University in 1923-4, but did not graduate. Macrae was a Scottish actor and comedian with a "glaikit" (Scots word for na ve or clueless) mannerism. He was a member of the early Citizens' Theatre company in Glasgow and was best known in his early years for his performance as King James VI in Jamie the Saxt by Robert McLellan.show more
