    He was unable to adapt to the public's declining interest in horror movies.
    He spent his final years as a near recluse, only meeting other people while hosting all-male parties at his estate.
    He drowned himself in his own pool despite his fear of water.
    He was often credited as producing his films, though he never actually did.
    He lived the American dream, immigrating from a poor English mining town to make a fortune in Hollywood.
    He spent time in a German prison camp during World War I.
    His impact on the horror genre is still felt today.
    He is generally considered a superior director to Tod Browning, the other major horror director of the 1930s.
    He was one of the first openly gay Hollywood celebrities and was ostracized for it.
