Life and career

John W. Boyle was born in Memphis, Tennessee, on September 1, 1891. He entered the film industry in 1915, when he shot three films, Greater Love Hath No Man, Her Great Match and My Madonna. In 1917 he photographed the silent classic, Cleopatra, starring Theda Bara. The film is on the American Film Institute's "Ten Most Wanted" list of lost American films.[1] J. Gordon Edwards helmed the film, and the two would work together on 22 other films over the following 12 years,[2] including such classics as Salomé and When a Woman Sins, both again starring Bara, and The Queen of Sheba, starring Betty Blythe.[3][4] [5]

During his long career, Boyle filmed over 70 feature-length motion pictures in the United States and Great Britain. He filmed several documentaries and also produced one of them, Sweden, Land of the Vikings.[6] Between 1928 and 1933 Boyle worked on short films, many of them produced by Mack Sennett.[7] Boyle was president of the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) from 1928 to 1929.[8]

Boyle died on September 28, 1959, in Hollywood, California.
