C. Montague Shaw was born on March 23rd, 1882 in South Australia with the birth name Charles Montague Shaw.  His career in acting began as a stage performer and he joined a repertory theater where he traveled throughout Australia as well as later to Great Britain.

He gained a number of years as a actor on the London stage and in 1926 he began his career in the film industry appearing on such shorts as, "The Set-Up" (1926) and "The Blue Boy" (1926).
