Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Edward Sedgwick (November 7, 1892 - March 7, 1953) was a film director, writer, actor and producer. He was born in Galveston, Texas, the son of Edward Sedgwick, Sr. and Josephine Walker, both stage actors. Young Edward Sedgwick joined his show business family as one of the Five Sedgwicks, a vaudeville act. The two other family members were Edward's twin sisters Eileen and Josie Sedgwick, who both later pursued successful silent-movie acting careers. Sedgwick broke into films as a comedian in 1915, frequently cast as a zany baseball player. He then became a serial director six years later in 1921, and moved on to the Tom Mix western unit. Sedgwick's love of baseball came in handy for the ballpark sequences of Mix's Stepping Out, Buck Jones' Hit and Run, William Haines' Slide, Kelly, Slide, Buster Keaton's The Cameraman, and Robert Young's Death on the Diamond.
