William V. Mong was active in the motion picture industry from 1910, as a staff director for Selig Studios. After Selig folded in the mid-teens, Mong directed a handful of films for other studios, then switched to acting (he appeared in 18 films in 1916 alone!) His screen roles of the 1920s ranged from the teetotaling Parson Brown in The Strong Man (1926) to the earthy Cognac Pete in What Price Glory? William V. Mong remained busy right up to his death in 1940, playing innumerable bankers, doctors, ministers, and a Roman senator or two.
