Theodore Reed wore many hats during his 30-year career in cinema. Born in Cincinnati, OH, and educated at the University of Michigan, he started out working in Douglas Fairbanks' production company in 1918 as a script editor. Reed made his directorial debut in 1921 with The Nut, starring Douglas Fairbanks. Continuing his alliance with Fairbanks, Reed became a production manager and worked on a number of the actor's best features including The Thief of Baghdad (1924). When the sound age dawned, Reed went to work for United Artists as a sound director. In 1932, he became an assistant producer for Paramount and by 1936, Reed returned to directing. His subsequent films were of average quality.
