Graduated from acting in Charlie Chaplin silents to directing numerous films, usually light comedies or musicals. Bacon was one of Warner Brothers reliable contract men for a number of years; some of his best and most fondly remembered films include the Busby Berkeley musicals, "Forty Second Street" (1933), "Footlight Parade" (1933) and "Wonder Bar" (1934), and films ranging from the uproarious black comedy "A Slight Case of Murder" (1938) to the potent melodramas "Marked Woman" (1937) and "Action in the North Atlantic" (1943). In all, Bacon directed over 100 films.
