Short Biography:
One of the more prolific American directors, Charles Lamont entered films as an actor in 1919 and became a director in 1922. He churned out numerous one- and two-reel comedies for various producers, including Mack Sennett and Al Christie, and began directing features in the mid-'30s. Lamont was a staple of such independent studios as Chesterfield and Republic, for whom he turned out many action, western and comedy films, but he found his niche at Universal in the late 1930s, and directed several comedies for Universal's top comedy team of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello, including one of their best, Hit the Ice (1943). Lamont also handled a number of Universal's Yvonne De Carlo Technicolor adventure extravaganzas, and helmed many entries in the studio's successful "Ma and Pa Kettle" series.
