George Sidney was a director and producer from the 1940s to the 1960s. He spent a year directing Our Gang comedies at the tail end of that series, and he was the youngest director the series had! He then signed with MGM, and directed many of their shorts, and in the mid 1940s, graduated to directing feature films, including some top MGM musicals such as Anchors Aweigh, Annie Get Your Gun, and Show Boat. He directed several movies with Elvis Presley, including Viva Las Vegas. He was one of the pioneers of 3-D! In 1941, he directed one of the three MGM Pete Smith's Audioscopiks shorts, "Third Dimensional Murder". 3-D did not catch on then, but a decade later, it became massive in feature films! Sidney passed away in 2002 at the age of 85.
