A onetime UCLA instructor and studio electrician, Leigh Jason turned to screenwriting in 1926 and directing in 1928. A more than competent journeyman, Jason directed programmers and short subjects at RKO, Columbia, Republic and several other bread-and-butter firms. He tackled any number of subjects, but seemed most at home with comedies and musicals. After closing out his film career in 1952, Leigh Jason became one of the most prolific directors of half-hour TV programs.
