Birthplace: Anderson, Indiana, USA

A hugely prolific Hollywood worker bee of the old school, Ray Enright worked with the greats from the dawn of the talkies into the Golden Age, though none of his films has retained enough significance for him to be considered an auteur. Born in Indiana, he moved to Los Angeles as a child, and his first work in Hollywood was as an assistant cutter at the Mack Sennett studios, starting in 1913. After serving in World War I, Enright continued work as an editor, before being made a director at Warner Bros. He went on to helm musicals, including the early Technicolor Oscar and Hammerstein outings "Song of the West" and "Golden Dawn"; risqué pre-Code thrillers and comedies; 1930s romps starring the likes of Joan Blondell, Ginger Rogers and Joe E. Brown; Westerns, often with B-king Randolph Scott; and a few works starring Hollywood's most famous hound, Rin Tin Tin. Busby Berkeley was his co-director on "Dames" (1934), starring Blondell and ZaSu Pitts. Enright directed Humphrey Bogart in 1941's "The Wagons Roll at Night"; the same year, his film "Teddy The Rough Rider" won an Academy Award for Best Short Subject. Marlene Dietrich and John Wayne were his stars in 1942's "The Spoilers."
