Cinematographer. A fine all-around craftsman, he seemed to work best with directors who had a strong personal vision. His versatility behind the camera encompassed the rugged vistas of John Ford westerns, the elaborate artifice of Josef Von Sternberg epics, and the technical gimmickry of Hollywood's first 3-D feature, "House of Wax" (1953). Glennon received Academy Award nominations for "Drums Along the Mohawk" (1939), "Stagecoach" (1939), and "Dive Bomber" (1941). His over 110 other credits include "Ramona" (1916), "The Ten Commandments" (1923), "Hotel Imperial" (1927), "Underworld" (1927), "The Last Command" (1928), "Blonde Venus" (1932), "The Scarlet Empress" (1934), "The Prisoner of Zenda" (1937), "Young Mr. Lincoln" (1939), "They Died with Their Boots On" (1941), "Wagon Master" (1950), "Rio Grande" (1950), and "Sergeant Rutledge" (1960). Robert Lawrence Glennon was born in Anaconda, Montana. In 1912 he entered films as an assistant cameraman while studying at Stanford University, and became a director of photography in 1916. He was far less successful as a director for RKO (1928 to 1932), and after making several mediocre films he returned to cinematography. Glennon was later active in television. He was the father of cameraman James Glennon ("About Schmidt", TV's "Deadwood").
