Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Joseph H. Lewis (April 6, 1907-August 30, 2000), was an American B-movie film director. Although he worked with both Bela Lugosi (The Invisible Ghost) and Lionel Atwill in early 1940s horror, he is best known for his work in film noir from the late 40s and the 1950s. His most acclaimed feature, Gun Crazy (1949), is a dark romance about gun-obsession, and notable for its use of location photography. At the dawn of his career (1937-1940), when Lewis was directing inexpensive westerns, he earned the derogatory nickname "Wagon-Wheel Joe" from the studio editors, because of his tendency to use wagon-wheels for constructing interesting visual compositions within the frame.show more
