      Fred F. Sears possessed a strong directorial eye, and consequently, he found a career as a director. Sears's career in acting began with his roles in various films like the western "West of Dodge City" (1947) with Charles Starrett, the western "Law of the Canyon" (1947) with Charles Starrett and the George Brent mystery "The Corpse Came C.O.D." (1947). He also appeared in the Rita Hayworth musical "Down to Earth" (1947), "Boston Blackie's Chinese Venture" (1948) and the adventure "The Gallant Blade" (1948) with Larry Parks. In the forties and the fifties, Sears devoted his time to various credits, such as "The Blazing Trail" (1949), "The Lone Wolf and His Lady" (1949) and "Blackhawk" (1952). He also worked on "The Kid From Broken Gun" with Charles Starrett (1952). In the latter half of his career, Sears directed the Bill Haley and The Comets musical "Rock Around the Clock" (1956), "The Werewolf" (1956) with Steven Ritch and the sci-fi picture "Earth vs. the Flying Saucers" (1956) with Hugh Marlowe. He also appeared in the Jeff Morrow horror film "The Giant Claw" (1957) and "Crash Landing" (1958). Sears was most recently credited in "Earth Girls Are Easy" (1989) with Geena Davis. Sears passed away in November 1957 at the age of 45.
