Actor Scott McKay Dies at 71. ...
March 20, 1987

Scott McKay, a frequent performer in the Depression-inspired WPA (Federal) Theatre whose roles in those lean economic times led to a series of Broadway credits that extended over 35 years, died Monday at Cabrini Hospital in New York City.

McKay, who last appeared on Broadway in 1973 and who appeared occasionally in films of the 1940s, died of kidney failure. He was 71.

Known for his versatility in a series of comedies and dramas that ranged from such classics as "Arms and the Man" to the contemporary "Born Yesterday," McKay made his Broadway debut in 1939 in "The American Way" and the following year--after several stock company roles--toured as Sandy in "The Man Who Came to Dinner."

For the next several years he was seen in "Eve of St. Mark," "Live Wire," "Another Part of the Forest," "Requiem for a Nun," "Bell, Book and Candle" and "The Moon Is Down."

He played David opposite Margaret Sullavan in "Sabrina Fair," replaced John Forsythe as Capt. Fisby in "The Teahouse of the August Moon" and portrayed Jeff Douglas in "Brigadoon," all on Broadway.

He succeeded Tom Poston as Bob McKellaway in "Mary, Mary" at the Helen Hayes Theatre in New York, toured with it nationally--including a 1962 Los Angeles appearance--and then returned to Broadway in the role.

His films included "30 Seconds Over Tokyo" with Spencer Tracy, "Duel in the Sun" with Gregory Peck and Jennifer Jones, and "Kiss and Tell," a 1945 Shirley Temple vehicle.
On television he was seen in many segments of "Play of the Week," "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" and the "U.S. Steel Hour."

Most recently he had written a series of plays.
Once married to film actress Ann Sheridan, he is survived by his wife, Anne-Marie, two sons, three stepchildren and a sister.
