Biography

Charles Saunders (often misspelled Sanders) was active in the British film industry from at least 1930. Saunders started out as an art director, then served as editor for films as diverse as the chop-licking meller Murder in the Red Barn (1935) and the patriotic We Dive at Dawn (1943). His first directorial credit was the 1944 comedy Tawny Pipit. Active until 1962, Charles Saunders spent the 1950s specializing in unsubtle melodramas, notably Kill Her Gently (1957) and Womaneater (1959). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
