Frank Capra was an Italian-American film director and producer who was the recipient of three Academy Awards for Best Director. One of the top most directors in Hollywood during the 1930s and 1940s, he is credited to be the creative force behind some of the major multiple-Academy Award winning films like ‘It Happened One Night’, ‘You Can't Take It With You’, and ‘Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.’ Born in Italy into a family of humble means, he emigrated to the United States with his family as a young child. He spent his childhood in poverty and had to take up odd jobs while still in school to add to the meager family income. He enrolled at the California Institute of Technology and worked throughout his college years. He struggled for the next few years as he could not find steady employment. Aimlessly wandering through life, he ventured into film-making by chance and found his calling. The budding film industry in the 1920s provided him ample opportunities to develop his skills. Starting with short reels, he was soon making feature films and saw phenomenal growth in his career as a director. Within years, he established himself as one of the foremost directors in Hollywood. Besides making films he was also active in various political and social issues within the film industry.
