#Fact
1In films with Vitagraph from 1915. His best-known work as director was under contract at Paramount, from 1919-22. Also worked at MGM (1927-29) and RKO (1933-35).
2As a director he worked regularly with cameraman Roy F. Overbaugh on numerous productions in the 1920s. Their greatest success was Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1920) for Paramount.
3The Byrds' 1967 song "John Robertson" was inspired by him. As a child, bassist Chris Hillman was bewildered by the sight of this silent-film throwback who wore a handle-bar mustache. His wife "Jo" is also mentioned in the song. The song was released as a single, then redone for the "Notorious Byrd Brothers" LP.
