Biographical Notes:

Coming from a show business family (his parents were stage actors), Rowland Lee began his career as a child actor in stock and on Broadway.

Lee didn't specialize in any particular genre in the many films he directed, but several of his lower-budget horror films were especially effective in their grim, gritty atmosphere.

His last film, "Captain Kidd" with Charles Laughton, had the potential to be a first-rate adventure yarn, but was hampered by its low budget

Appeared In:

"Captain Kidd" (1945)

"Powder Town" (1942)

"The Son of Frankenstein" (1939)
