"His career began to pick up in the mid-30s, after he joined MGM. A prolific, technically proficient filmmaker, he rapidly advanced from second features to prestige productions. Over the next 30 years he proved himself to be a reliable director of all genres, ideally suited in his ability and temperament for working within the Hollywood studio system. Although he lacked a particular personal style and never directed a 'great' picture, he had a consistently acceptable batting average as a director of fine, unpretentious entertainment, ranging from drama and polished adventure to comedy and musicals."
