      Mini-Biography
      From All Movie Guide:
      Indiana native Mack V. Wright was an actor, stunt man, director, writer, assistant director, and production manager on hundreds of films (1917-1955), all of it done with little distinction but with a sure sense of speed and economy. Wright is perhaps best remembered for playing the title role in the 1919 serial The Lion Man and for directing several of John Wayne's Westerns for Warner Bros. (1932-1933). In his later years, Wright functioned as assistant director and production supervisor for B-movie maker W. Lee Wilder. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, All Movie Guide

    • Mack V. Wright is one that you may have long forgotten, or even didn't know about!!

      Mack directed 4 films with Duke,
      but was also involved in others, as a bit actor,
      or Assisatnt Director

      Winds of the Wasteland.(1936)....Director
      Randy Rides Alone (1934).... (uncredited) .... Deputy
      The Man from Montery.(1933)....Director
      Somewhere in Sonora.(1933)....Director
      Haunted Gold.(1932)....Director and (uncredited) .... Henchman Mack

      Range Feud was his ill-fated time with Columbia

      Haunted Gold, Somewhere in Sonora, and The Man From Montery
      were part of the 6 WB films, with Duke, and Duke the Wonder Horse.

      The last Winds of the Wasteland was made for Republic,
      when Duke was at last, seeing some success!
