    Could it be Jack L. Warner, of Warner Brothers Studios? Wearing an eye patch just to make the picture symmetric? :confused: ;)

    Bullets for Raoul!
    • Changed his name--at the suggestion of playwright friend Paul Armstrong--from Albert Edward Walsh to the more exotic Raoul Walsh.
    • Was commissioned a second lieutenant in the Signal Corps during World War I but never went to Europe. He managed war footage for bond drives and arranged to have Mary Pickford sell war bonds.
    • Walsh disliked his first wife, actress Miriam Cooper, intensely and referred to her in his autobiography as the "mercenary witch." As both were Catholics, Cooper never remarried after their divorce. They had two adopted sons.
    • Jane Russell said in her biography that Walsh was blind towards the end of his life.

    As one tunnel builder to another...

    "William Gibbs McAdoo, U.S. Senator from California and former engineer in charge of the construction on the famous Hudson Tubes between New York and New Jersey, pays a visit to the remarkable tunnel set built by Fox Film engineers for its new thriller, 'East River.' .Senator McAdoo, with the wrench, is talking over the details with Raoul Walsh, who is directing the picture, while Victor McLaglen, playing one of the starring roles, and Borden Chase (the author) listen in."

    "Occidentally, on purpose!

    "Mae West butts heads with Victor McLaglen in Raoul Walsh's Klondike Annie, but the real victor was the Legion of Decency, whose censorship strictures transformed a saucy and spicy gumbo into something closer to chicken noodle soup."

    "Love may or may not make "the world go 'round," but there is no question that it keeps the movie industry in business. Recently, 20th Century-Fox sent Jane Russell and Richard Egan all the way to Honolulu for a love scene. Director Raoul Walsh (right) tells Jane Russell and Richard Egan exactly how he wants this love scene played. Richard, he says, is to be excited, but a gentleman. Jane must struggle with her emotions as well as with Richard. They must be careful to stay in position and not swing from their marks, or they're liable to photograph out of proportion."

    "This group of movie directors, all top names in the business, have all been in pictures for thirty years or more. They were gathered together by Ralph Staub, who filmed them as a group for Columbia's Screen Snapshots subject commemorating the 50th anniversary of motion pictures exhibition.

    Seated from left to right are Edward H. Griffith, Sam Wood, Cecil B. DeMille, Irving Cummings and William Seiter. Standing are Alfred E. Green, Raoul Walsh, Eddie Sutherland, George Marshall, Robert Z. Leonard and Richard Wallace."
