Dallas M. Fitzgerald-He was an American motion picture director and producer, primarily in the silent era. He's also known as the writer of the Frank Buck serial Jungle Menace. Dallas Fitzgerald was the son of William Fitzgerald, a traveling salesman, and Jasie Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald was a director of low-budget films. He began acting in films in 1916. He was hired by Greater Pictures Corp. in 1917. He directed mostly action melodramas believing, according to a 1921 interview, that the "public likes pictures made outdoors." In the late 1920s, Fitzgerald became a producer of the films Wilful Youth (1927) and Golden Shackles (1928) through low-budget Peerless Pictures, which had been founded by Jules Brulatour. In the sound era, Fitzgerald wrote screenplays for such serials as The Black Coin (1936), The Clutching Hand (1936), and The Great Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok (1938). In 1937, Fitzgerald was a writer of the Frank Buck serial Jungle Menace. He died in 1940.
