  • A veteran of tent and medicine shows, vaudeville, and stock companies, Brooklyn-born George Rosener claimed to have appeared in and/or directed more than 200 plays. He left show business to become a staff writer with the New York World in the early 1910s but was soon back on the boards, appearing in or co-writing such plays as the original Artists and Models and, with star Dorothy Donnelly, My Maryland. His later Broadway success Speakeasy became an early talkie for Fox and Rosener began his association with motion pictures writing and directing dialogue scenes, notably for the 1932 Warner Bros. Technicolor hit Doctor X, in which he also played the butler, Otto. He went on to appear in countless small supporting roles, often playing stern officials, but would occasionally accept a writing assignment, including the 1937 Columbia serial Jungle Menace.
