Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, California,
United States of America
(age 78)
American director and actor who, after a short career in professional baseball, began working at Rolin/Roach as a stock actor while eventually working his way up to the director's chair, notably helming or co-helming (with Sam Taylor) many of Harold Lloyd's best films at and post-Roach in the 1920s.  He apparently directed the original pilot for the "Our Gang" film series, but after it tested poorly, it was scrapped and was re-shot with Robert F. McGowan.

A list of his directing credits will follow later on this page...
