Personal Quote:

[on the first movies he ever saw c. 1912] In those days movies were nothing more than penny arcade entertainment. During my lunch hours I used to go into"'shooting galleries", as we called theaters then, and look at pictures. Gradually I had the feeling that I would like to try them. See more »

Trivia:

After seeing that many of the finest pictures were produced by World Pictures and Maurice Tourneur, he found his way to Fort Lee, NJ--World Pictures' headquarters--and introduced himself to the director. The studio was looking for an assistant and hired him. Tourneur took him on and Brown remained with him for seven years. See more »
