Biography

From Wikipedia

Harry Beaumont (February 10, 1888 – December 22, 1966) was

an American film director, actor, and screenwriter. He worked for a variety of

production companies including Fox, Goldwyn, Metro, Warner Brothers, and

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.

Beaumont's greatest successes were during the silent film

era, when he directed films including John Barrymore's Beau Brummel (1924) and

the silent youth movie Our Dancing Daughters (1928), featuring Joan Crawford.

He then directed MGM's first talkie musical, The Broadway Melody (1929). The

latter film won the Best Picture Academy Award that year, and Beaumont was

nominated for Best Director.

Beaumont was married to actress Hazel Daly. The couple had

twin daughters Anne and Geraldine, born in 1922.

On December 22, 1966, Beaumont died at St. John's Hospital

in Santa Monica, California.[4] He was buried in Forest Lawn Memorial Park,

Glendale.
