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).
