Doran Henry Cox was a Second Unit Director, Assistant Director and Director in Hollywood from 1918 - 1955. He was the Asst. Director for Val Lewton's "Cat People" and "Bedlam." Val Lewton

I watched "Cat People" with him in the 1950s at his home in Van Nuys. He was my great uncle and a wonderful person.

There is some controversy over where he was born. Some records say Kansas. Hinton, WV claims him as a famous son. However, his WWI draft registration says Kansas, which is more definitive.
