Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[explaining why he refused offers to direct at the big Hollywood studios and instead stayed at lowly PRC] I didn't want to be ground up in the Hollywood hash machine. See more »

Trivia:

Spent the first three years of his career in the U.S. (1930-33) as an art director. Began to direct features from late 1933. Except for brief stints at Universal in the mid-30's and United Artists (1946-47), was primarily associated with 'poverty row' studios, such as PRC. See more »
