Highest Rated: 89% White Zombie (1932)
Birthday: Aug 24, 1895
Birthplace: Not Available
Stage actor/director Victor Halperin was producer, director, and scripter of several low-budget film dramas and melodramas over a two-decade period. Halperin's first talkie was the Douglas Fairbanks Jr. starrer Party Girl (1929). He usually worked in collaboration, most often with his brother Edward. The Halperin Brothers were responsible for a group of murky, inexpensive horror films of the 1930s, produced independently and released by distributors ranging from mighty Paramount to less mighty Grand National. Their best work (at least, the one most frequently revived) was the eerie Bela Lugosi chiller White Zombie (1932); their oddest was A Nation Aflame (1937), an anti-racism piece based on a work by pro-racist Thomas Dixon. Victor Halperin spent his last creative years as a director at lower-rung PRC studios. He retired in 1942, completely leaving the film industry, before dying in 1983.
