Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jean Yarbrough (August 22, 1901-August 2, 1975) was an American film director. He was born in Marianna, the seat of Lee County in southeastern Arkansas. After attending the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, he entered the film business in 1922, first as a propman, but he steadily rose in the ranks to assistant director. Beginning with 1936, he was a bona fide director, first doing comedy and musical shorts for RKO, but in 1938, he already directed his first feature, Rebellious Daughters. His greatest success came in the 1940s, when he directed films that are even today fondly remembered such as The Devil Bat, King of the Zombies, She-Wolf of London, or any number of Abbott and Costello and Bowery Boys comedies.show more
