Director Andrew V. McLaglen, best known for his work on Westerns including John Wayne’s “McLintock!” and James Stewart’s “Shenandoah,” has died at the age of 94.

According to the Journal of the San Juan Islands, McLaglen died on Saturday, Aug. 30 at his home in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island, WA. A cause of death was not reported.

McLaglen was born in England to Oscar-winning actor Victor McLaglen (“The Informer”) and Enid Lamont in 1920, and moved to Hollywood with his family soon after his birth.

Before transitioning to the director’s chair with “Gun the Man Down” in 1956, he served as an assistant director on 14 pics, including Wayne films such as “Big Jim McLain,” “Island in the Sky” and “Blood Alley.” He would go on to direct Wayne in four Westerns — “McLintock,” “The Undefeated,” “Chisum” and “Cahill U.S. Marshal” — as well as action movie “Hellfighters.” McLaglen served as unit production manager on Wayne’s “Hondo,” and in return, Wayne produced several of the director’s films, including “Man in the Vault” and “Gun the Man Down.”

McLaglen also enjoyed a fruitful working relationship with Stewart, helming “Bandolero,” “The Rare Breed,” “Fools’ Parade” and “Shenandoah.”

In addition to his big screen work, McLaglen directed for numerous TV series; he’s credited on 116 episodes of “Have Gun – Will Travel,” 96 episodes of “Gunsmoke,” and several episodes of “Gunslinger,” “Perry Mason” and “Rawhide” (in which he directed Clint Eastwood).

After retiring to San Juan County, McLaglen reportedly supported the local performing arts community and directed productions at the San Juan Community Theater.
