The Pittsburgh-born star of low-budget serials such as Wolves of Kultur (1918) and Hurricane Hutch (1921), Charles Hutchison moved his operations to Great Britain in the mid-1920s. Playing a cowboy who crosses paths with a mad nobleman (Greed's Gibson Gowland), Hutchison attempted to transfer his stock-in-trade -- furious, non-stop action -- to the more leisurely paced British film industry. The attempt -- which included torture chambers, damsels-in-distress and other cliches of the genre -- was by all accounts unsuccessful. Hutchison was soon enough back in Hollywood, where he continued his career mainly behind the camera, producing and directing very low-budget action melodramas and serials through the 1930s. He was still associated with the genre as late as 1944, when he appeared in the Republic serial Captain America.
