Biography by Sandra Brennan

Edward José was born in Antwerp but raised in the U.S. He got his start in films as an actor during the early 'teens with his most famous role as "The Fool" in the 1915 film that made Theda Bara a star. Soon afterward José became a director (most noted for his ambitious 1915 six-reel film Beloved Vagabond) and worked on a few of the first Pearl White adventures. He continued directing assorted Hollywood films through 1922 when he began directing French films.
