Scott served in France in World War I with the 2nd Trench Mortar Battalion, 19th Field Artillery.


He was posthumously awarded a Golden Palm Star on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars in Palm Springs, California on April 16, 1999.


Biography in: "The Scribner Encyclopedia of American Lives". Volume Two, 1986-1990, pages 764-766. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1999.


Inducted into the Hall of Great Western Performers of the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in 1975.


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.


Was the inspiration for the popular 1973 song "Whatever Happened to Randolph Scott?," a top-20 country hit for the The Statler Brothers.


In 1965 Mike Connolly reported that Scott was one of the wealthiest actors in the world with real estate holdings in San Fernando and Palm Springs alone worth over $100 million.


Campaigned for Barry Goldwater in the 1964 presidential election, and attended the Republican National Convention.


Following a critically acclaimed, less-heroic-than-usual role in one of the classics of the genre, Ride the High Country (1962), Scott retired from films. A multimillionaire as a result of canny investments, Scott spent his remaining years playing golf and avoiding film industry affairs, stating that he didn't like publicity.


He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6243 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on February 8, 1960.


Made a visit to Emory & Henry College at Emory, Virginia in 1951-1952 to assist in learning Virginia dialect. Signed autographs for several students, in particular Elizabeth Lawson who would later marry Ralph Griffith.


He became one of the top box office stars of the 1950s and, in the Westerns of Budd Boetticher especially, a critically important figure in the Western as an art form.


Their on-and-off living arrangement would last until 1942.


He was a pleasant figure in comedies, dramas and the occasional adventure, but it was not until he began focusing on Westerns in the late 1940s that he reached his greatest stardom.


Was Margaret Mitchell's choice to play Ashley Wilkes in Gone with the Wind (1939).


He was scheduled to co-star once again with friend Cary Grant in Spawn of the North (1938), but salacious rumors about the two caused Paramount to replace them with Henry Fonda and George Raft. Shortly after completing his Paramount contract Scott opted not to re-sign and instead moved to Fox.


He met Cary Grant, another Paramount contract player, on the set of Hot Saturday (1932) and the pair soon moved in together.


Interred at Elmwood Cemetery, Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, just four blocks from his boyhood home at 312 W. 10th Street.


Scott married and divorced wealthy heiress Marion DuPont in the late 1930's. He moved into leading roles at Paramount, although his easy-going charm was not enough to indicate the tremendous success that would come to him later.

His screen persona altered into that of a stoic, craggy, and uncompromising figure, a tough, hard-bitten man seemingly unconnected to the light comedy lead he had been in the 1930s.


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.
