Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. George J. Folsey, A.S.C. (July 2, 1898 - November 1, 1988) was an American cinematographer who worked on 162 films between 1919 and his retirement in 1976. Born George Joseph Folsey in Brooklyn, he was hired by Jesse Louis Lasky to work as an office boy in his newly-formed Jesse L. Lasky Feature Play Company in New York City. He earned his first screen credit for His Bridal Night in 1919. Leading lady Alice Brady was so satisfied with the way he photographed her she offered him a contract to shoot all her films. He worked for both Associated First National and Paramount Astoria Studios before relocating to Hollywood and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, where he spent the bulk of his career.show more
