Pick for 8.23.12 – “Hollywood Cavalcade”

I’ve been the most fired director in pictures . . . I was hired and fired, two fires to every hire. Finally they ran out of directors. So they let me be one. I got fired some more. Then Gilbert Seldes, when I was quite permanently fired, wrote a blurb in which he referred to one of my pictures as a “subtle achievement”. Sennett saw it, found out what it meant and hired me back again.
