Motion-Picture Director. One of Hollywood's most prolific filmakers, he directed 154 films in 28 years. His first feature, "The Raven" (1935), a fine thriller starring Bela Lugosi, is probably his best. Landers was born Louis Friedlander in New York City. He began directing serials in 1934 under his real name, then adapted his pseudonym two years later. During his hectic career he churned out scores of genre pictures for practically every studio in Hollywood, particularly RKO and Columbia, and showed flashes of talent despite the tight budgets and schedules he had to work with. In the 1950s Landers began directing for television, including episodes of "The Adventures of Superman" and "Maverick", and alternated between TV and theatrical features for the rest of his life. He died of a heart attack. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
