Lloyd Corrigan (October 16, 1900 – November 5, 1969) was an American film and television actor, producer, screenwriter, and director who began working in films in the 1920s. The son of actress Lillian Elliott, Corrigan directed films, usually mysteries such as Daughter of the Dragon starring Anna May Wong (one of a trilogy of Fu Manchu movies for which he has writing credits), before dedicating himself more to acting in 1938. His short La Cucaracha won an Academy Award in 1935.



Born in San Francisco, California, Corrigan studied drama at the University of California, Berkeley, from which he graduated in 1922. Corrigan played both romantic leads and villains throughout his career. He also appeared in a number of Boston Blackie films as millionaire Arthur Manleder. He starred with Roy Acuff and William Frawley in the 1949 film, My Home in San Antone. In the 1950 film, Cyrano de Bergerac, he played Ragueneau, the lovable pastry cook, though in this version the role is partially combined with that of Ligniere, the drunken poet, who is omitted from the film.

Corrigan continued acting in films until the middle 1960s. He worked extensively in television, having appeared as Dean Dodsworth, a college administrator, in the second season (1954-1955) of Meet Mr. McNutley, when the CBS sitcom was renamed The Ray Milland Show for its star, Ray Milland. Corrigan appeared on dozens of television programs, such as the uncle of Corky played by Darlene Gillespie in the Mickey Mouse Club serial, "Corky and White Shadow." He also appeared in two episodes of the NBC western, The Restless Gun with John Payne.

He was cast on ABC's religion anthology series, Crossroads. He appeared in the role of Wally Dippel in ABC's The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, in the syndicated crime drama, City Detective, with Rod Cameron, and on the television version of How to Marry a Millionaire, with Barbara Eden and Merry Anders. He appeared on NBC's Johnny Staccato with John Cassavetes, and the syndicated western, Man Without a Gun, starring Rex Reason and Mort Mills. Three times Corrigan portrayed the western author Ned Buntline in ABC's The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp. He also guest starred on the CBS sitcom, Dennis the Menace, with Jay North in the series lead.

In 1959, Corrigan was cast as John Jenkins, with Anne Baxter as Ellie Jenkins, in the episode "A Race to Cincinnati" of the NBC western series, Riverboat, starring Darren McGavin and Burt Reynolds. In the story line, three ruthless men try to prevent a peach farmer from getting his crop to market so that he cannot make the last payment on his valuable land, which he will otherwise forfeit.

From 1960 to 1961, Corrigan appeared as a series regular, Uncle Charlie, in the NBC sitcom Happy, with Ronnie Burns, adopted son of George Burns and Gracie Allen, Yvonne Lime Fedderson, and Doris Packer. He made guest appearances on CBS's Perry Mason in 1962 as Rudy in "The Case of the Dodging Domino," in 1963 as land financier and murderer Harvey Forrest in "The Case of the Decadent Dean," and in 1965 as Attorney Gerald Shore in "The Case of the Careless Kitten". In 1963, Corrigan portrayed Captain Rembrandt Van Creel in "The Day of the Flying Dutchman" on ABC's western series, The Travels of Jaimie McPheeters, starring child actor Kurt Russell. Dehl Berti portrayed the Indian, Little Buffalo.

In 1965 and 1966, Corrigan appeared in the NBC TV sitcom Hank as Professor McKillup.
