  • Stage actor Edward Dillon was in on the ground floor of the motion picture industry, entering films in 1908. Dillon spent several fruitful years at Biograph, under the direction of D. W. Griffith; his credits during this period include such landmark works as Enoch Arden (1910) and The Lonedale Operator (1911). When Griffith left Biograph in 1913 to form his own company, Dillon joined him, playing major roles in such multi-reel efforts as Home Sweet Home (1914). From 1915 to 1921, Dillon was primarily a director, helming films with such Broadway favorites as DeWolfe Hopper (Sunshine Dad) and Ann Pennington (The Antics of Ann). Edward Dillon returned to acting in the early twenties, essaying character parts and featured roles well into the sound era.
