RATE AND COMMENT

BIOGRAPHY

Former actor and portrait photographer who began a highly influential cinematographic career in 1914. Edeson shot many of Douglas Fairbanks' adventures from 1917 through the following decade and showed off his command of the moving camera in the early sound film "All Quiet on the Western Front" (1930). After memorable collaborations with director James Whale at Universal on such horror classics as "Frankenstein" (1931), "The Old Dark House" (1932) and "The Invisible Man" (1933), he made a significant contribution to the output of Warner Bros. from 1936 to 1947, photographing such classics as "The Maltese Falcon" (1941) and "Casablanca" (1942), before retiring in 1949.
