  • Robert Compton-Bennett was an editor for Alexander Korda in the early 1930s. He cut army training and propaganda films, and helmed the documentaries Find, Fix and Strike and Men of Rochdale during World War Two. In 1945 he directed the short Julius Caesar and his first feature, the celebrated psychological drama The Seventh Veil, written by Muriel and Sydney Box. Bennett helmed a trio of films in Hollywood in the late '40s (My Own True Love, That Forsyte Woman, King Solomon's Mines), then continued to work in England through the 1960s, making theatrical features such as the war-refugee drama Desperate Moment, as well as directing for television.
