Dudley Murphy (10 Jul 1897 – 2 Feb 1968)

“Boston-born Dudley Murphy was an engineering student, World War I pilot, and movie set decorator before launching his directing career with a series of evocative short films including the first American avant-garde film to be screened in New York City, 'The Song of the Cypress' (1921). These musically driven experiments culminated in the jazz-infused 'Ballet Mecanique,' and influenced his later Hollywood and independent features, including 'The Emperor Jones' (1933).” —Susan Delson
