Filmmaker Bryan Foy, jokingly dubbed "Keeper of the 'B's" by industry colleagues for his long association with low-budget films, made his place in cinema history as the director who filmed Lights of New York (1928) "the first 100 percent all-talking picture" for Warner Brothers. Foy is the son of renowned vaudevillian Eddie Foy. Along with his brothers, he began his career in vaudeville as a member of the Seven Little Foys. While there, he wrote the hit song "Mr. Gallagher and Mr. Shean." In 1918, he left the troupe to begin directing comedy shorts at Fox. He then went on to free-lance as a screen and joke writer for Buster Keaton. He linked up with Warner during the mid '20s, where, in addition to his landmark talky, he also directed several low-budget films. Eventually he became a producer and the head of Warner's "B" unit until the '40s when he moved to Fox. By the '50s he had returned to Warners where he produced yet another technical landmark House of Wax (1953), one of the most popular 3-D films of all time.
