Did You Know?
[on his career slide from top-ranked director in the 1920s and 1930s to working on Poverty Row "B"--and lower--quickies in the 1940s] A couple of producers told me I was washed up. But making movies is what I do. It's what I know how to do, and I don't plan to stop now. I've got no regrets. I just have to start over.
Beaudine worked almost exclusively on low-budget quickies, and rarely would shoot a scene a second time--even if there was a minor (or in some cases, not so minor) gaffe in the scene. Because of this, he earned the nickname "One-Shot" Beaudine.
