When he struck a deal with Pancho Villa to film the story of his life, he sent Walsh down to Mexico on a dual assignment: I used to get him [Villa] to put off his executions.

Raoul Walsh: The Documentary
It was from Griffith that he picked up the habit of memorising a script before every shoot and his peculiar practice of walking away from a scene while it was still being shot. He also learned the importance of the dramatic crescendo to build tension in a story, that ratcheting up of suspense that characterises so much of his work, and how to meld grandeur and intimacy so seamlessly.
Yet for all his preternatural talent, Walsh might easily have been forgotten by history, joining the ranks of such modestly successful directors as W. Van Dyke and George Marshall, men whose careers were long and productive but little remembered today. He even directed a musical, St.

If for nothing else, we owe Warner for his observation of Walsh: He never saw his boys, and Marilynn [his stepdaughter by his second marriage] seemed to grow more fond of her stepfather than he of her.
In , Walsh wed Mary Simpson. He was 60, she was Blue-eyed, blonde and vivacious, Mary, like her husband, was not immune to the attentions of the opposite sex, especially when Walsh was busy looking the other way.

During the filming of Captain Horatio Hornblower on the Riviera, she was frequently spotted disappearing with French director Edmond Greville, and later, on location in Florida for Distant Drums , with Gary Cooper. Maybe, but anyone familiar with Cooper will certainly have his doubts. Not that Walsh makes for an easy subject.
