Personal Fact of Walter Lang

Walter Lang was an eminent American film director best known for directing a number of the spectacular colorful musicals for Fox Studios during the 1940s. Not much is known about his early life except that during the First World War he served the US Army in France. On coming back, he got a job at a film production company and slowly became interested in directing.

He got his first chance when Dorothy Davenport asked him to direct her in her own production The Red Kimono. Subsequently he made twelve more silent films. Therefore, by the time sound arrived, Walter Lang was already an established director. Yet, he did not get any good opening until the mid-1930s, when the 20th Century Fox hired him.

They provided him with good scripts and first-rate actors and Lang began producing hits, many of which were musicals. In the meantime, he had made a short trip to Paris, hoping to make a mark as painter; but was unsuccessful in the venture. However, in spite of being billed as one the greatest directors of Hollywood, he nurtured a love for painting, which he took up once again after retiring from film industry. He was a thorough gentleman and was highly respected by contemporaries.
