William Witney's first serial credit
15 August 2004 | by (Hamilton OHIO) – See all my reviews

Although the IMDb lists Alan James and Ray Taylor as directors of the Painted Stallion, a look at the credits is needed to see that William Witney's name was added as director. Witney tells the story in his book,"In A Door, Into A Fight - Out A Door, Into A Chase" of how he became a serial director at Republic while only in his twenties. He had been "holding the script" for Painted Stallion, as an assistant to directors James and Taylor. He already had experience as a film cutter so he knew how to pace the storyline. Witney says that the crew was out on location at Lone Pine (I believe) and the weather was very cold. Taylor had already been nipping at the bottle on the way up. He even had his young son with him who tried desperately to keep his father in line. At the end of a scene, Taylor simply arose from his chair and began walking over to another area from where the crew had been working. Everybody assumed that he was going to set up the next scene. The camera man, the electricians and everybody followed him. When he came to a bush, he simply sat down and opened up his coat from which he took a bottle and proceeded to take a good slug, right in front of the whole crew!!! Unfortunately, the producer was there and fired Taylor on the spot, sending him home with his son. Witney said, the producer then turned to him and said "Could you help direct for a few days until we could get a replacement." Witney said he would and stayed on to help finish the serial. In the finished print, his name comes third. That was in l937 and Witney remained at Republic until it closed its' doors in 1959. He was of course part of the famous serial directorial team, partnering with Jack English. Ray Taylor did however continue direct serials over at Universal and then for Ron Ormond's Lash Larue series.
