William Alexander Kirkland (September 15, 1901, Mexico City, Mexico – circa 1986) was a leading man in Hollywood during the early sound era, as well as a notable stage actor who starred in productions of the Group Theatre in New York.
Kirkland attended the Taft School in Watertown, Connecticut and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. He toured as one of the Yale Puppeteers and then worked with the troupe at the Turnabout Theatre in Los Angeles, which operated from 1941 to 1956. His friend and theater colleague Forman Brown used him as the model for one of his characters in the early gay romance novel Better Angel (1933).
On radio, Kirkland played David Brewster in the soap opera Big Sister in the early 1940s, Curt Lansing in John's Other Wife, and Russell Barrington in Society Girl in that same era.
He married entertainer Gypsy Rose Lee in 1942. They separated after three months and finally were divorced in 1944. From 1944 to 1950, he was married to socialite, actress, and TV producer Phyllis Adams Jenkins (1923-2004).
Little is known about his later years, but there have been no sources indicating his death, save from a source on IMDB, claiming his death sometime in the 1980s.Wings Over Europe (1928)
