Biography

A former child actor who played some leading roles in the 1940s, notably in "For Me and My Gal" (1942) and "We've Never Been Licked" (1943), Quine began his behind-the-camera career in 1948, when he co-directed "Leather Gloves" with William Asher. He went on to direct several fine films in the 1950s, proving himself adept with thrillers ("Pushover" 1954), musicals ("My Sister Eileen" 1955) and comedies ("The Solid Gold Cadillac" 1956). His later output, despite the bigger budgets he was able to command, were generally less satisfactory.
