A handsome and dignified stage actor, Murdock MacQuarrie began his long screen career in early versions of The Scarlet Letter (1913), The Count of Monte Cristo (1913), and Richelieu ([1914], in the title role) before becoming a director at Universal. Increasingly gaunt and cadaverous, MacQuarrie returned to acting exclusively in the early '20s, playing hundreds of bit parts until the year of his death. Two brothers, Albert MacQuarrie (1882-1950) and Frank MacQuarrie (1875-1950), also appeared in films.
