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
"Captain Kidd" (1945)
"Powder Town" (1942)
"The Son of Frankenstein" (1939)
