In 1928 he went to Hollywood to appear in feature films, among them "Midnight" (1928) and "Little Johnny Jones" (1929, in the title role), then wrote, directed and starred in a series of 26 Columbia comedy shorts. He made his debut as a feature film director in 1932, turning out movies for Columbia, Universal, Paramount and (from 1938 to 1949) MGM, mainly comedies and light fare.
