Jack Buchanan’s Biography
Born in Helensburgh, Scotland, he was the son of Walter John Buchanan Sr. (deceased in 1902), auctioneer, and his wife Patricia (born McWatt and deceased in 1936), he made his debut in the British theater in 1912, and on Broadway in 1924. He began in the cinema with silent films in 1917. Like David Niven, Buchanan was renowned for representing both the cinema and the theater the figure of the classic English man. He worked on Broadway and the West End and played roles in several Hollywood musicals, such as The Band Wagon (1955 Broadway Melodies) (1953), his best-known film, in which he was Jeffrey Cordova, and in which Fred played Astaire and Cyd Charisse. He suffered from spinal arthritis (although this did not prevent him from doing several dance numbers with Astaire in Band Wagon), and he died in London only four years later, due to a cancer in the spine, at 66 years of age.
In 1938 Buchanan got the unusual situation of starring in the theatrical musical “This’ll Make You Whistle” in London, while filming the film version. The film premiered while the theatrical version was performed, so the two productions competed with each other.
Other roles include those of Monte Carlo (1930), Smash and Grab (1937), and The Gang’s All Here (1939). He also produced several films, including Happidrome (1943) and The Sky’s the Limit (1938), the last of which he directed.
Buchanan also provided financial support for another Scottish native of Helensburgh, John Logie Baird, who worked on a primitive electromechanical television system. In addition, Buchanan was known among his colleagues for his generosity in financially supporting less prosperous actors.
