Rupert Julian

Rupert Julian

Rupert Julian (January 25, 1879 - December 27, 1943) was a cinema actor, director, writer and producer.

Born Thomas Percival Hayes in Whangaroa, New Zealand, Rupert Julian performed on stage and in film in his native New Zealand and Australia before emigrating to the United States in 1911, starting his career as an actor in Universal silent movies. He turned to directing in 1915, often directing his wife Elsie Jane Wilson, but his work was merely routine until he was assigned to complete "Merry-Go-Round" in 1923 when director Erich von Stroheim was fired from it, and in 1925 guiding Lon Chaney in "The Phantom of the Opera". He soon fell into a professional decline after the advent of sound, and after directing "The Cat Creeps" and "Love Comes Along" (both in 1930), his career faded.

Rupert Julian died in Hollywood, California at the age of 64 and was interred in the Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Glendale, California.
