David Butler's filmmaking career spans forty years. He is best remembered as a prolific director of musicals and romantic comedies. Prior to becoming a director, the San Francisco born Butler began his career as a three year old child actor. In 1918, he debuted on film in D.W. Griffith's The Greatest Thing in Life. He then went on to star in a series of films until 1929; concurrently Butler also appeared on the stage. In 1923, he became the stage manager of the Morosco Theater in Los Angeles, and four years later, became a director for Fox. He has also directed for Paramount, and Warner Bros. where he was popular for his dependability, and his consistent, quality work. In addition to directing, Butler also occasionally produced, and co-scripted his films.
