From 1944 to 1951, Harmon Jones was one of the leading lights of the 20th Century-Fox film-editing department. Jones graduated to the director's chair with the Monty Woolley vehicle As Young as You Feel (1951), which featured up-and-coming Marilyn Monroe. His first directorial projects showed promise, especially his brace of baseball pictures-- Pride of St. Louis (1952) and The Kid from Left Field (1953). Soon, however, Jones was churning out routine westerns and so-so costume flicks. Harmon Jones switched to television in the late 1950s, returning to the big screen in 1966 for one last feature, the Morey Amsterdam-Rose Marie starrer Don't Worry, We'll Think of a Title (1966).
