      Mini biography
      Russian-born Edward Ludwig came to the U.S. as a child,
      and was educated in Canada and New York City.
      He entered the film business as an actor in silents,
      then became a scenarist and screenwriter, and in the early 1930s started directing.
      Although most of his films were routine second features, he showed a flair for
      action pictures, a good example of which is a John Wayne war epic he made for Republic,
      The Fighting Seabees (1944), one of Wayne's better
      - and most successful - films for that studio.
      In the mid-'60s he turned to directing TV series.

    • Edward Ludwig directed 3 films with Duke,

      Big Jim McLain (1952)
      Wake of the Red Witch (1948)
      The Fighting Seabees (1944)

      During location at a marine camp near San Diego,
      Duke would spend evenings, drinking with off-duty marines.
      Quite often the servicemen would try to pick a fight with Duke,
      thinking, he was a marine out of uniform.

      Ludwig said at the time,
      Wayne would lose more fights, than he won....
      and I had to forgive him going out,
      if I expected him to get through the picture in one piece.
