COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS

Director (feature film)

1.
Promises! Promises! (1963) as Assistant Director
2.
Fire Maidens of Outer Space (1956)
After landing on the 13th moon of Jupiter, the men from Earth debark from their ship to find a forested area containing the last remnant of lost Atlantis: an old man named Prossus, a bevy of nubile young women eager for husbands, and -- The Creature. "The beast with the head of a man," laments Prossus. "It must be destroyed -- yet it is indestructible!"
3.
Air Strike (1955) as Director
4.
Combat Squad (1953) as Director
A plotless shot-on-the-lot and sound-stage Korean War entry that is even below the standard of house producer Sam Katzman, which is understandable when the name of Jerry Thomas, the producer of Lash LaRue PRC westerns, shows up as the producer. A small platoon of American infrantry, led by Sergeant Fletcher (John Ireland), captures a cave and smashes a roadblock and then heads back for some "R n' R" with some U.S.O hostesses. Then they clean some snipers out of a thicket, accomplished with the aid of a raw recruit, Martin (Lon McCallister.)
5.
Slaughter Trail (1951) as Assistant Director
An Indian hating bandit''''s reign of terror could lead to a range war.
6.
Holiday Rhythm (1950) as Assistant Director
7.
Dragnet (1947) as Assistant Director
8.
Thunder Town (1946) as Assistant Director
9.
The Strange Mr. Gregory (1946) as Assistant Director
A magician fakes his own death to catch a murderer.
10.
Rolling Home (1946) as Assistant Director
Old time rodeo performer Raymond Hatton and his grandson, (Buzz Henry as Robert Dee 'Buzzy" Henry) arrive in a small town with an injured horse, and local minister Russell Hayden tends the horse's injured leg. Jean Parker, a wealthy but selfish young widow, lives in the town. The church is in debt but the minister's financial problems are eventually solved by the horse winning a surrey race, and the widow whose attitude has been softned by Hatton, Henry and Hayden. This was the first film Harry Carey Jr appeared in as an adult, and was brought about when the just-discharged-from-the-Navy Carey ran into producer William Berke on an Hollywood street corner. Berke, who had produced six sound westerns in the mid-30's starring the elder Carey, offered Carey Jr. a bit in this film. The first film Harry Carey Jr appeared in was in 1921, as an infant in one of his father's silent westerns. Even with a 25-year-gap between his "first" and second film, Carey's 80 years of work in films may be the longevity record.
11.
Ambush Trail (1946) as Assistant Director
Bolton, trying to get the ranchers to leave, has his outlaw gang ambush all incoming supply wagons. Curly Thompson, out to stop them, gets framed for murder and put in jail.
12.
In Old New Mexico (1945) as Assistant Director
The Cisco Kid (Duncan Renaldo) and Pancho (Martin Garralaga) hold up a stagecoach and kidnap Ellen Roth (Gwen Kenyon). They take the girl, who is wanted on a murder charge, to the mission where Padre Angelo (Pedro de Cordoba) will look after her. She tells Cisco of a mysterious Doctor Willis(Richard Gordon) who called on an aged woman she had been nursing and gave her an overdose of sleeping pills. Convinced that Ellen is innocent, Cisco sets out to prove it. He goes to Bill Hastings (Norman Wills) where he makes a deal to turn Ellen in if Cisco gets part of the money Hastings will inherit when she is convicted. With Ellen safely in jail, Cisco and Pancho force the local newspaper to run a story saying that Doc Willis has been apprehended. Hastings makes another deal with Cisco to kill Ellen before she testifies against Doc.

A WAVE, a WAC and a Marine (1944) as Production Manager
Henny (Henny Youngman), talent scout for the Margaret Ames (Sally Eilers) Film Agency in Hollywood, mistakes Judy (Anne Gillis) and Marian (Elyse Knox), the understudies, for Eileen (Marjorie Woodworth) and Betty (Ramsay Ames), the real stars of a Broadway show and signs them up for movies. Margaret, furious with Henny for the blunder, fires him---but only temporarily. Another agent, Marty Allen (Richard Lane), once married to and still in love with Margaret, signs Betty and Eileen. Henny arrives with Judy and Marian, and the nightclub manager asks Henny to emcee the show. Though he is not sure himself what they can do, Henny introduces the girls and they make a hit in a dramatic sketch. (Simmer down, it's just a Monogram movie, and their nightclub attendees can react anyway director Phil Karlstein/Karlson wants them to.) Big-time movie producer R. J. (Alan Dinehart) signs them to a film contract. So, what does this have to do with the title, "A WAVE, a WAC and a Marine"? Because Judy joins the WAVES, Marian the WACS and Marty the Marines and all have two weeks before induction, and that is more than long enough to shoot a Monogram musical-within-a-Monogram musical and have a few days to spare.
