Phil Brandon Biography

  • Profession: Director, Producer, Associate Producer, Sound/Sound Designer
  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Philip Brandon (also sometimes credited as Phil Brandon) was a production manager and assistant director in British pictures who subsequently became an associate producer after World War II on some important movies, with a short stint as a director during the war itself. His early credits as an assistant director include work on [[Feature~V14075~The Divorce of Lady X~thedivorceofladyx]] and [[Feature~V44591~Sidewalks of London~sidewalksoflondon]], so obviously he had sufficient talent and ability to work for Alexander Korda's London Films. As a director, however, he was neither a notable stylist nor a terribly inventive talent. Brandon was simply efficient, based on the evidence, and his directorial efforts are easily overlooked -- apart from the wartime morale booster [[Feature~V116142~We'll Meet Again~wellmeetagain]] (1942), which proved a good vehicle for the talents of [[Performer~P209810~Vera Lynn~veralynn]]. After the war, however, he moved back into Korda's orbit as an assistant director on [[Feature~V115342~Vacation From Marriage~vacationfrommarriage]] (1945), and an associate producer on [[Feature~V96197~An Ideal Husband~anidealhusband]] (1947) and [[Feature~V16649~The Fallen Idol~thefallenidol]] (1948). Brandon was also the production manager on the British RKO feature [[Feature~V110797~So Well Remembered~sowellremembered]] (1947). At the end of his career, he had moved into second unit direction -- as part of a contingent of British crew members -- on the American-produced, partly African-photographed [[Feature~V112743~Tarzan's Peril~tarzansperil]] (1951). ~ Bruce Eder, Rovi
