Marcus "Marc" McDermott (24 July 1881 – 5 January 1929) was an Australian actor who starred on Broadway and in over 180 American films from 1909 until his death.


Marc McDermott commence sa carrière d'acteur au théâtre, passant notamment par Sydney, Londres et Broadway (New York), où il joue une première pièce en 1902, The Joy of Living d'Hermann Sudermann et Edith Wharton (produite par Charles Frohman), aux côtés de Charles Bryant.

Installé définitivement aux États-Unis, il joue encore à Broadway dans deux autres pièces jusqu'en 1909, dont Peer Gynt d'Henrik Ibsen en 1907, avec Emma Dunn.

Cette même année 1909, il apparaît pour la première fois au cinéma, dans une série de courts métrages. En tout, il contribue à deux-cent-huit films muets — dont de nombreux autres courts métrages —, majoritairement américains (sauf un britannique en 1922). Son dernier film est The Whip de Charles Brabin (réalisateur qu'il retrouve souvent), avec Ralph Forbes et Anna Q. Nilsson, sorti en septembre 1928, moins de quatre mois avant sa mort prématurée, des suites d'une cirrhose.

Entretemps, mentionnons Larmes de clown de Victor Sjöström (1924, avec Lon Chaney, Norma Shearer et John Gilbert), L'Aigle des mers de Frank Lloyd (version de 1924, avec Milton Sills et sa compatriote Enid Bennett), Sa vie de Frank Borzage (1925, avec Norma Talmadge et Wallace MacDonald), ou encore La Tentatrice de Fred Niblo et La Chair et le Diable de Clarence Brown (tous deux de 1926 et avec Greta Garbo).

The film is a semi-historical narrative and depicts the real-life courtship, marriage, and forced breakup of Jérôme Bonaparte, brother of Napoleon, and his wife from the American south, Elizabeth Patterson. Napoleon did not approve of the union (despite the fact that her family was one of the wealthiest in America) and the marriage was annulled. Jérôme was subsequently forced to marry Catharina of Württemberg. They had one child, depicted in the film, Jérôme Napoleon Bonaparte. In order to provide a "happy ending", Jérôme in the film leaves France to be with his wife. However, in historical fact he remained in Europe.
