Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. B. Reeves Eason (October 2, 1886 - June 9, 1956) was an American silent film director, actor and screenwriter of the early period. Born William Reeves Eason in New York City, he directed 150 films and starred in almost 100 films over his career. Eason's career transcended into sound and he directed film serials such as The Miracle Rider starring Tom Mix in 1935. He used forty-two cameras to film the chariot race as a second unit director on Ben-Hur (1925), the climactic charge in Charge of the Light Brigade (1936) and also directed the "Burning of Atlanta" in Gone with the Wind (1939). His son, B. Reeves Eason, Jr., born in 1914 would later appear in twelve films, including Nine-Tenths of the Law, which Eason Sr. directed. He died in a train accident during filming in 1921.
