    Mini Biography
    While attending Stanford University in 1912, Bert Glennon was hired as an assistant cameraman, and, upon graduation, went into the film business full-time. Becoming a director of photography in 1916, Glennon became one of the industry's most respected craftsmen and worked often for such perfectionist directors as John Ford and Cecil B. DeMille. His success as a cinematographer didn't carry over to his attempts at directing, however; the few films he directed from 1928 to 1932 were increasingly mediocre, and he gave up his attempts at directing to resume his distinguished cinematography career, where he stayed until his retirement in 1963.

  • Cinematographers, were responsible for putting the magic
    onto the silver screen, and without them, the spectacle would never be!

    Four such men,
    William H. Clothier,Archie Stout, Winton Hoch and Bert Glennon
    were without doubt very special to Duke and his movies.

    Clothier and Hoch, more or less took over the mantle,
    from Stout for the years after!

    Bert Glennon was an American cinematographer and film director.
    He directed Syncopation (1929) the first film released by RKO Radio Pictures.

    He was nominated for three Academy Awards in Best Cinematography
    categories for the films Stagecoach (1939), Drums Along the Mohawk (1939),
    and Dive Bomber (1941)

    with John Ford

    Glennon worked as a cinematographer on over a hundred films
    for directors including John Ford, André De Toth,
    Josef Von Sternberg, Raoul Walsh, and Cecil B. DeMille.

    His son, James Glennon, was also a noted cinematographer.

    Bert Clennon, was a top cinematographer,
    and a favourite of both John Ford, and Cecil B. DeMille,

    He was responsible for the camerawork
    on such movies as
    Swanee River, Drums Along the Mohawk , Young Mr. Lincoln,
    Destination Tokyo, Wagon Master, Sergeant Rutledge etc.
    As well as top TV Series such as Disneyland,
    Davy Crockett, Bonanza, Laramie, M Squad,
    The Dakotas, 77 Sunset Strip, Lawman, Maverick etc

    Bert.Glennon - James Wong Howe [2nd cam]

    More importantly he bought the camera magic,
    to what was probably Duke's most important career movie

    He was the cinematographer on 3 movies with Duke
    Operation Pacific (1951)
    Rio Grande (1950)
    Stagecoach (1939)
