Biography

H. Bruce 'Lucky' Humberstone (b. November 18, 1901, Buffalo, New York - d. October 11, 1984, Los Angeles, California) was a movie actor (as a child), a script clerk, an assistant director, working with directors such as King Vidor, Edmund Goulding and Allan Dwan and, ultimately, a director.

One of twenty-eight founders of the Directors Guild of America, Humberstone worked on several silent movie films for 20th Century Fox. Humberstone did not specialize; he worked on comedies, dramas, and melodramas. Humberstone is best known today for his work on some of the Charlie Chan films. In the 1950s, Humberstone worked mostly on TV.

He retired in 1962, and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He died in 1984, aged 82.
