A cameraman for the Triangle company in 1917, Missouri-born Tom Buckingham became a busy director at Fox in the 1920s specializing in action/melodramas. Having helmed Tony Runs Wild (1926), one of Tom Mix's better features, Buckingham was replaced by Lewis Seiler halfway through No Man's Land (1926), a fact which may have hastened his departure from the studio. He went on to direct a couple of Westerns for low-budget Liberty Pictures starring stuntman Jack Padjan, but for all intents and purposes, Buckingham became yet another casualty of sound.
