  • Born: Jan 1, 1895
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Nicholas Musuraca entered the film industry through the service door, as the chauffeur for silent-movie producer [[Performer~P185011~J. Stuart Blackton~jstuartblackton]]. Hired on as general help at Vitagraph, Musuraca gravitated towards camerawork, and by 1923 he was a full director of photography. He spent most of the talkie era at RKO, lensing everything from million-dollar "A" pictures to comedy 2-reelers. In 1947, he was nominated for an Academy Award for his work on I Remember Mama. After a brief late-1950s stay at Warner Bros, Nicholas Musuraca returned to his home studio, now rechristened Desilu, where he spent his last active years in TV work. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
