Biography by Hal Erickson

Had London-born director Sinclair Hill learned his trade in the British film industry of the 1910s, chances are his work would have been as bland and uninspired as that of many of his silent film colleagues. Fortunately Hill was trained at Italy's Turin Studios, whose films were far more artistically and technically advanced than 90% of the dreck churned out by the English studios of the teens. Hill commenced his British career with 1920's Tidal Wave, remaining active with such first-rate projects as The Guns of Loos (1928) and The Price of Divorce (1928) until the late '30s. In addition to his directing credits, Sinclair Hill penned several screenplays during his two-decade movie career.
