Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. George Archainbaud (7 May 1890 - 20 February 1959) was a French-born American film and television director. In the beginning of his career he worked on stage as an actor and manager. He came to Hollywood in 1915, and started his film career as an assistant director to Emile Chautard. In 1917 he made his directorial debut As Man Made Her. During the next three and a half decades he directed over one hundred films. After the beginning of the 1950s he moved to television. While working at the RKO in the beginning of the 1930s, he showed some artistic and skillful eye with many of his films. The finest examples include Thirteen Women (1932) and The Lost Squadron (1932). Especially the latter is a memorable thriller about Hollywood stunt flyers, who risk their lives under the direction of monstrous Erich von Stroheim.
