W. S. Van Dyke was an American film director and writer best known for the films ‘The Thin Man’ and ‘San Francisco’ for which he received Academy Award nominations for Best Director. He was also famous for the series of musicals he made with Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald. A director known for his adherence to budget and commitment to schedule, he was as much respected for his craft as he was for his reliability. The son of an actress mother, he lost his father the day he was born. His mother worked as a touring vaudeville actress to support herself and her son. Familiarized to show business at an early age, he began appearing on stage as a toddler and appeared in a variety of roles in vaudeville and travelling stock companies as a young boy. He grew restless as a teenager and did a series of odd jobs before returning to theater. He soon ventured into Hollywood and realized that he was more interested in directing films. After working as an assistant director with D. W. Griffith and James Young, he made his directorial debut with ‘The Land of Long Shadows.’ He established himself as a versatile and reliable director over the years and directed several top-grossing and award winning films.
