When rustic comedian Chic Sale began making 2-reel comedies at RKO Radio in the early 1930s, Sale's vaudeville partner Ben Holmes came along for the ride. Before long, Holmes gave up acting to join RKO's writing and directing staff, overseeing the short-subject antics of such comedians as Clark and McCullough, Edgar Kennedy and Leon Errol. With 1934's Lightning Strikes Twice, Holmes branched out into features, directing RKO medium-budgeters like Maid's Night Out (1938) and Petticoat Larceny (1943). Ben Holmes also handled the second-unit direction of Sandrich's Buck Benny Rides Again (Paramount, 1940).
