Robert McKim (1877 – June 4, 1927) was an American actor of the silent film era and a performer in vaudeville. He appeared in nearly 100 films between 1915 and 1927. He played the arch villain opposite Douglas Fairbanks's Zorro in The Mark of Zorro in 1920.[1]


McKim was born in 1877 in San Jacinto, California[2] and attended schools in San Francisco.[3] He acted with stock theater companies in California,[2] beginning with the Alcazar Stock Company,[3] before he worked in films, beginning with the Ince and Triangle companies.[2]

McKim starred with Lon Chaney in the 1923 silent version of All The Brothers Were Valiant. One of his last roles was again as a villain in the unfinished silent The Mysterious Island, starring Lionel Barrymore based on the Jules Verne novel. Though McKim shot its silent sequences in 1927, the film was not released until 1929 and McKim was uncredited.

A nervous breakdown caused McKim to leave films. He went on to perform in vaudeville.[4]

McKim married fellow actress Dorcas Matthews[4] and they had two sons.[2]

He died on June 4, 1927, in Los Angeles, California, hospital, aged 50. His death came three days after he had "a partial stroke of paralysis".[4]
