Mini Bio (2)
At age 17, Samuel Fuller was the youngest reporter ever to be in charge of the events section of the New York Journal. After having participated in the European battle theater in World War II, he directed some minor action productions for which he mostly wrote the scripts himself and which he also produced (e.g. The Baron of Arizona (1950)). His masterpiece was Pickup on South Street (1953) for 20th Century Fox, but at the end of the 1950s, he regained his independence from the production company and filmed many other movies of note, including the controversial White Dog (1982).

Sam Fuller had six siblings: three brothers (Ving, Ray and Tom) and three sisters (Evelyn, Tina and Rose). His most famous sibling was his older brother, the nationally syndicated comic strip artist and cartoonist, Ving Fuller. In the 1920s Ving was a staff cartoonist at the New York Evening Graphic, where Sam was a crime reporter (and sometimes cartoonist). Ving went on to create numerous comic strips and gag cartoons, the most well-known of which is "Doc Syke" (later called "Little Doc"), which was syndicated in newspapers from 1945-50. The two brothers had a close, loving relationship, as depicted by Sam Fuller in "A Third Face," his 2002 autobiography written with Christa Lang and Jerome Henry Rudes. Sam admired his brother's talent, writing, "Unlike me, he was a talented, committed cartoonist." Ving Fuller contributed the front page editorial cartoons seen in Sam Fuller's 1952 tribute to the American newspaper, Park Row (1952).
