Actor and Director. Born Norman Hoeffer in Richmond, Indiana, he made his Broadway debut in 1926 and arrived in Hollywood at the beginning of the talkie era, playing light leads in such films as "Love at First Sight" (1930), "It Pays to Advertise" (1931), "Smilin' Through" (1932), and "State Fair" (1933). In 1936 Foster started directing programmers at Fox, including several entries in the "Mr. Moto" and "Charlie Chan" series, and went on to make several interesting, offbeat features, among them "Journey into Fear" (1942), "Rachel and the Stranger" (1948), "Kiss the Blood Off My Hands" (1948), "Woman on the Run" (1950), and "Navajo" (1952). He later directed for TV. Foster was married to actress Claudette Colbert from 1928 to 1935, and to actress Sally Blane from 1935 until his death.
