Reginald Barker (Reginald Barker)

Reginald Barker

Motion Picture Director. Working for producer Thomas Ince in the 1910s, he directed William S. Hart’s first westerns and co-directed Ince’s famous pacifist feature “Civilization” (1916). He was highly esteemed for his outdoor adventure films shot in rugged locations, such as “The Eternal Struggle” (1923) and “The Flaming Forest” (1927). With the coming of talkies Barker was reduced to directing B pictures at Poverty Row studios and by 1937 he was out of the business altogether. He ended his days running a gift shop in Pasadena.  Barker died of a heart attack at 58.
