Herbert L. Strock(1918-2005)
- Production Manager
Boston-born Herbert Strock's introduction to the movie business was as director of the Fox Newsreel crew, visiting Hollywood stars in their homes. After serving with the Ordnance Motion Picture Division, he found employment as an editor at MGM and later moved into the infant medium of TV, producing and directing The Cases of Eddie Drake (1952), the first-ever motion picture film to become a network series. Strock made the transition to feature film directing in 1953, when (in the midst of production) he took over direction of the SF thriller The Magnetic Monster (1953) from Curt Siodmak. Today he operates his own post-production facilities.
