Tim Whelan always looked at the world in a creative way, and it transferred to his impeccable eye as a director. Whelan found his footing in the industry as a screenwriter by penning scripts for such comedy movies as the Harold Lloyd film "Safety Last" (1923), "The Freshman" (1925) starring Harold Lloyd and "Exit Smiling" (1926) with Beatrice Lillie and Jack Pickford. He also appeared in "Tramp, Tramp, Tramp" (1926) with Harry Langdon and "Hook, Line and Sinker" (1930) with Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey. He continued to work in film in the thirties, directing motion pictures like the Edward Everett Horton comedic adaptation "It's a Boy" (1933), "The Murder Man" (1935) and "Action For Slander" (1937). In the latter half of his career, Whelan directed the musical comedy "Seven Days Leave" (1942) with Victor Mature, the George Brent comedy adaptation "Twin Beds" (1942) and "Higher and Higher" (1943) with Michèle Morgan. He also appeared in the musical "Step Lively" (1944) with Frank Sinatra and "Swing Fever" (1944). Whelan last directed "Texas Lady" (1955) with Claudette Colbert.
