Tinling was a busy American director of light features from the late silent era through the late '40s, at which time he moved to television. Tinling worked primarily with actors such as James Dunn, Joan Bennett, Irene Hervey, etc. He directed a Charlie Chan movie, a Mr. Moto feature, and the 1941 remake of Riders of the Purple Sage, among many others. A comment made by one critic concerning Tinling's feature Jimmy and Sally (1933) -- "amiable little film of no consequence whatsoever" -- could be used to describe most of Tinling's output. The easy-going, unassuming nature of his films made them the perfect escape for moviegoers in their day, and for nostalgia buffs today. Tinling began as a prop boy and stuntman.
