Alfred Edward Green (July 11, 1889 - September 4, 1960) was an American movie director.[1] Green entered film in 1912 as an actor for the Selig Polyscope Company. He became an assistant to director Colin Campbell. He then started to direct two-reelers until he started features in 1917.[2]


Green was born on July 11, 1889, in Perris, California.

In a durable career lasting until the 1950s, Green directed major stars such as Mary Pickford, Wallace Reid, Barbara Stanwyck, and Colleen Moore. In 1926's Ella Cinders, he also played a director. In 1935, Green directed Dangerous, starring Bette Davis, who won Best Actress for her performance. Much later came Green's hit success The Jolson Story (1946) and the affectionate western Four Faces West (1948), known outside the US by the more expressive title They Passed This Way. Then followed another string of B movies. After retiring from motion pictures, he directed several TV episodes.
