Erle C. Kenton entered films as an actor with the Mack Sennett troupe.
While specializing in comedies (he made two of Abbott & Costello's funniest films, "Pardon My Sarong" and "Who Done It?"), he also branched out into the horror field, turning out a few somewhat interesting examples ("House of Dracula, " "House of Frankenstein") and one genuine classic: 1932's "Island of Lost Souls."
In the 1950s he turned to directing series TV episodes.
