Biography by Hal Erickson

Gruff, stocky British character actor Gordon McLeod first appeared on stage in repertory in his native Devon. After establishing himself on the London stage, McLeod made his first film in 1925. Almost always cast as a brusque authority figure, he was most often seen as dyspeptic newspaper editors and conclusion-jumping detectives. Though his most famous screen role was the cigar-chomping city editor in The Squeaker (1935), Gordon McLeod is also fondly remembered for his work as Inspector Teal in The Saint in London (1939) and The Saint Meets the Tiger (1943), and as Inspector Venner in Meet Sexton Blake (1946).
