McLaglen was born in London, the son of British-American actor Victor McLaglen and his wife, Enid Lamont, who moved to Hollywood in the early 1920s, shortly after his birth. He was from a film family that included eight uncles and an aunt, and he grew up on movie sets with his parents as well as John Wayne and John Ford. After working as an assistant director on a few smaller films, Ford gave him an assistant director job on the 1952 film The Quiet Man.

After several more assistant director jobs, McLaglen directed his first film, Man in the Vault (1956), which was followed by Gun the Man Down (1956), a western B-movie with James Arness, Angie Dickinson and Harry Carey, Jr. Both were produced by John Wayne's Batjac Productions. He went on to work extensively in television directing, prolifically directing episodes of Perry Mason (7), Gunslinger (5), Rawhide (6), and then 116 episodes of Have Gun – Will Travel, The Lieutenant (4), The Virginian (2), and 96 episodes of Gunsmoke.
