Hollywood film director J. Gordon Edwards began his career as a theatrical actor and stage director. The Canadian-born Edwards made his directorial debut on film in 1914 for Fox Pictures. Soon he began helming all of the studio's mega-budget spectacles, including all of actress Theda Bara's productions between 1916 to 1919. Later Edwards became the production supervisor at Fox; he still continued to direct until he died in 1925.
