William Wellman was unlike most of the other directors, in that they boasted of being tough old birds, and Wellman actually was. (Raoul Walsh was about the only other one who could make this claim.)
His spirit didn't exactly endear him to studio heads, but his track record certainly did: Wings, Nothing Sacred, A Star Is Born, Beau Geste, The Light That Failed, The Ox-Bow Incident, Story of G.I. Joe, Yellow Sky, Battleground, The High and the Mighty, Westward the Women . .
