By 1926 he was working as a gagman for 'Reginald Denny'. He wrote several moderately successful gangster movies in the early 1930s, their "authentic feel" rumored to have been enhanced by his having been a bootlegger with mob ties during Prohibition. Career stalled after being fired, first from directing The Scarlet Pimpernel (1934) by Alexander Korda, then by David O. Selznick from A Star Is Born (1937). Little heard of after 1940.
