Hal Roach Filmography

PostSat Apr 23, 2011 9:52 am

I am generally aware of what Roach is credited with producing, but I'm curious to know if there is a filmography for what he directed. In addition, I'm not sure what credits are attributed to him as a writer? I've seen his interviews and read numerous things about him, and he never comes off as a particularly creative type?

Rather than take up a lot of space with another long list, here is the link to IMDb's listing of Roach's writer credits:

Wasn't sure which thread to mention this, but somebody is crowdfunding a documentary on Hal Roach:
