Short Biography:
Director Edwin L. Marin was born in Jersey City, NJ, in 1899. He traveled to Hollywood as a young man, and at age 20 got a job in the industry as an assistant cameraman. By 1932 he had crossed over to directing, first for low-budget studio Tiffany Pictures. However, he worked his way up the Hollywood food chain and was soon making films for major studios like Warner Brothers and MGM, where he was entrusted with that studio's prestigious A Christmas Carol (1938) with Reginald Owen, which turned out to be a critical and financial hit. He worked for most of the major studios at the time--United Artists, 20th Century-Fox and RKO--and seemed to find his niche making westerns, turning out several well-received ones with cowboy star Randolph Scott. He was married to actress Ann Morriss. He died in Los Angeles, CA, in 1951, at 52 years of age.
