About Joseph Levigard

Studio executive for Universal Pictures and director of a number of silent western films.

A member of Universal founder Carl Laemmle's large family, director Joseph Levigard spent the main part of his screen career helming the studio's many two-reel Western series. In fact, in 1930 Levigard directed what must certainly have been the final silent Westerns ever released, the second Northwest Mounted Police series starring Ted Carson. Like most of "Uncle" Carl's many family retainers, Levigard abandoned screen work at the changeover to sound.
