American writer/producer/director Arthur Hoerl began his movie career in 1924. One of Hoerl's handful of directorial credits of the 1930s was Drums o' Voodoo (1934), a fascinating low-budget melodrama targeted at all-black audiences. His screenwriting credits included the above-average Monogram mystery The Thirteenth Guest (1933) and the immortal anti-marijuana tract Reefer Madness (1934). Arthur Hoerl went on to pen such films as the "Shadow" entry Behind the Mask (1946), the "Jungle Jim" effort Killer Ape, and the three-part Rocky Jones, Space Ranger TV adventure Manhunt in Space (1953), which later earned a theatrical release as a feature film.
