      Ernest B. Schoedsack

      Highest Rated: 100% The Most Dangerous Game (1932)

      Lowest Rated: 42% Son of Kong (1933)

      Birthday: Jun 8, 1893

      Birthplace: Council Bluffs, Iowa, USA

      Former cameraman for Mack Sennett who co-directed two documentaries and several features with Merion C. Cooper, whom he met in Poland in 1920. Schoedsack and Cooper's first significant collaboration was the spectacular documentary, "Grass" (1925), which enjoyed a popular theatrical release in the wake of the success of "Nanook of the North" (1922). They are best known for "King Kong" (1933), which was co-written by Schoedsack's wife, Ruth Rose. In the post-Kong era, Schoedsack served exclusively as director and Cooper as producer; the two parted ways in the late 1930s.
