The son of actors, Briton Walter Summers entered films as an assistant director in 1917. The following year, he joined the writing staff of producer Cecil Hepworth. A full director by 1923, he kept busy in this capacity and, occasionally, as a producer until 1940. Much praised for his realistic approach, Summers nonetheless never felt himself above such chop-licking melodramas as The Return of Bulldog Drummond (1934), At the Villa Rose (1941), and Dead Eyes of London (1939). Walter Summers was the father of director Jeremy Summers.
