Biography

​From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Edward Buzzell (November 13, 1900 - January 11, 1985) was an American film director whose credits for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer included Honolulu (1939), the Marx Brothers films At the Circus (1939) and Go West (1940), the musicals Best Foot Forward (1943) with Lucille Ball and Neptune's Daughter (1949) with Esther Williams, and Easy to Wed, starring Van Johnson, Williams, and Ball.

Buzzell was born in Brooklyn. He appeared on Broadway, and was hired to star in the 1929 film version of George M. Cohan's Little Johnny Jones with Alice Day. Buzzell appeared in a few Vitaphone shorts, and the two-strip Technicolor short The Devil's Cabaret (1930) as Satan's assistant. He wrote a few screenplays in the early 1930s and later produced The Milton Berle Show which premiered on television in 1948.

Buzzell married actress Ona Munson in 1927, and they divorced in the early 30s. He later married actress Lorraine Miller. He died in Los Angeles at the age of 84.
