Motion picture director, working primarily with Edgar Kennedy. Directed the Laurel and Hardy comedy short "Hats Off" (1927), precursor to their Academy Award Oscar statuette winning "The Music Box" of five years later, based on the same premise of lugging a bulky object (in the former case, a washing machine; for the latter, a piano) up a lengthy flight of stairs. He repeated a similar plot on the Kennedy short "It's Your Move" (1945).
