Mini Bio (1)

The younger brother of director Leo McCarey, Ray McCarey entered the film business in the mid-'20s as a prop boy, working his way up to assistant director, screenwriter and then director. In the early 1930s he joined Hal Roach Studios, where he directed several Our Gang and Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy comedies, then moved on to Columbia, where he helmed several of The Three Stooges shorts. McCarey worked in all genres and many studios, from musicals at Republic to westerns at Columbia, but most of his output was routine and he never achieved the stature of his famous older brother.
