Biography by Hal Erickson

Reportedly, London-born Harold S. Bucquet's entree into the American film industry was as a silent-movie extra. Bucquet began his Hollywood directorial career in the MGM short subject department, helming episodes of such series as Crime Does Not Pay and Carey Wilson Miniatures; one of his two-reelers, Torture Money (1937), won an Academy Award. He remained in the "series" groove when he moved to features, directing several of MGM's Dr. Kildare entries. Perhaps as a reward for his years of faithful service to Leo the Lion, Harold S. Bucquet was occasionally promoted to MGM's A-pictures, notably the 1944 wartime morale-booster Dragon Seed and the 1945 Tracy-Hepburn vehicle Without Love.
