Actor-turned-director Richard Quine, born in Detroit, began his professional life in vaudeville before turning the the legitimate stage and then movies (his films as an actor include Counselor-At-Law, perhaps John Barrymore's best movie, from 1933), first as an actor and, from 1948 onward, as a director. The best of his films, My Sister Eileen (1955), The Solid Gold Cadillac (1956), Operation Mad Ball (1957), Bell, Book and Candle (1958), and It Happened to Jane (1958), all date from the middle and late '50s, and are all comedies. Sex and the Single Girl (1964) and How to Murder Your Wife (1965) were the last of his genuine hits, after which changing attitudes left his movies ever further from the public's taste.
