Biography by Hal Erickson

British writer Roger Burford's film career began in 1934 and ended three years later. Burford generally worked on period pictures, evincing a happy knack for writing contemporary-sounding dialogue without being anachronistic. Among his other accomplishments, he managed to keep the 1934 filmization of the venerable operetta Blossom Time from becoming a sugary wallow. Roger Burford's best-known film was the valedictory George Arliss vehicle Dr. Syn (1937).
