      A prominent producer of low-budget features from the 1940s through the 1960s with his brothers Maurice and Frank. In 1941, the King Brothers formed King Brothers Productions and began churning out some of the more significant B-films of the 1940s such as William Castle's directorial debut and Robert Mitchum's first major credit, "When Strangers Marry" (1944); "Dillinger" (1945) written by Philip Yordan; and Joseph H. Lewis' extraordinary film noir story of doomed lovers on the run, "Gun Crazy" (1947). They also produced "The Brave One," a 1956 feature directed by Irving Rapper and written by 'Robert Rich', a pseudonym for blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. The film received an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay that was not picked up until 1975. Other King Brothers Productions include "Gorgo" (1961), a story of a hapless baby sea serpent, "I Escaped From the Gestapo" (1943), "Carnival Story" (1954), and the well regarded TV movie, "Return of the Gunfighter" (1967).
