RATE AND COMMENT

BIOGRAPHY

Entered film in 1932 as an editor for Alexander Korda and Sydney Box and worked on propaganda and training films for the British Army between 1939 and 1941. Bennett made a strong impression with his debut feature, "The Seventh Veil" (1945), a superior psychological melodrama that boosted the star careers of James Mason and Ann Todd. His only other well-known film, co-directed with Andrew Marton during a brief spell in Hollywood, is the second screen version of "King Solomon's Mines" (1950).
