Singer/actor Fred Scott started out entertaining on vaudeville, acting on Broadway, and singing operetta. He later appeared in many silent comedies, including those of Mack Sennett, and appeared in one feature-length silent film. Later he worked in a few musicals during the early '30s, but soon left movies to spend a few years singing opera. Between the late '30s and early '40s, Scott played a cowboy crooner known as "the Silvery-Voiced Buckaroo" in a few Westerns. Following his retirement in the '40s, Scott became a realtor.
