Guthrie McClintic (August 6, 1893 - October 29, 1961) was a successful theatre director, film director and producer based in New York. McClintic was born in Seattle and attended Washington University and New York's American Academy of Dramatic Arts and became an actor but soon became a stage manager and casting director for major Broadway producer Winthrop Ames. His Broadway directional debut was on A. A. Milne's The Dover Road. McClintic's first major success was on The Barretts of Wimpole Street featuring his wife in 1931. He also directed Hamlet featuring John Gielgud in New York in 1937. Katharine served on the Board of Directors of The Rehearsal Club, a place where young actresses could stay while looking for work in the theatre. McClintic sometimes found roles for the young women in his plays. In what may have been lavender marriages, homosexual McClintic was married to actress Estelle Winwood, and then to actress Katharine Cornell--herself a lesbian—for forty years. After they were married, they formed a production team M.C. & C Company, which produced all the plays for the rest of his life.
