Ford Beebe (b. November 26, 1888, Grand Rapids, MI; d. November 26, 1978, Lake Elsinore, CA) was a director/screenwriter who tackled literally every film genre during his 50-year career; he even supervised the live-action footage used as reference for the "Pastorale" sequence in the Disney cartoon feature Fantasia (1940). For the most part, Beebe called the shots on westerns, detective pictures, and (especially) serials. Some of Beebe's nearly 200 chapter plays include Flash Gordon's Trip To Mars (1938), Buck Rogers (1939), The Green Hornet (1940), and Don Winslow of the Navy (1942). Hardly pausing for breath as he entered the 1950s, Ford Beebe directed all twelve installments of Monogram's Bomba the Jungle Boy B-series, splicing generous stock footage from the 1930 documentary Africa Speaks into each film.
