      Mini biography
      Joseph Kane's career as a professional cellist ended when he became a film editor in 1926.
      His directing career started with co-directing serials for Mascot and Republic,
      and he soon became Republic's top western director.
      He handled many of John Wayne's Republic westerns of the 1940s,
      and piloted numerous Roy Rogers and Gene Autry films
      (he was once asked in an interview why he did so many westerns.
      He replied, "I like the outdoors. The horses. The cowboys. I like that.").
      Unlike most Republic house directors, Kane was credited
      as associate producer on many of his films.
      He stayed at Republic until the studio's demise in 1959,
      and after freelancing for mostly independent production companies,
      he turned to directing TV series.

    • Joseph Kane was involved in over 100 films,
      but made just 5 with Duke,

      Dakota.(1945)
      Flame of the Barbary Coast.(1945)
      The Lonely Trail.(1936)
      King of the Pecos.(1936)
      The Lawless Nineties.(1936)

      Joseph, a former film editor at Paramount,
      preferred action over story.
      Like most of Duke's early directors,
      he shot his films, in 6 days!
      Before you start out in the morning,you have to plan out, what you're going to do.so you don't waste anytime....We had to come up with 54 minutes, of picture!
      None of them masterpieces, but another step
      in Dukes, blossoming career.
