OccupationFilm director, producer

Lance Comfort (11 August 1908 – 25 August 1966) was an English film director. In a career spanning over 25 years, he became one of the most prolific film directors in Britain, though he never gained critical attention and remained on the fringes of the film industry, creating mostly B movies.[1]

Comfort carried on working almost right up to his death in Worthing, Sussex, in 1966.[2] He had four children: Edward (born 1929), James (born 1931), Anna (born 1934) and Jack (born 1936).


Critical assessment

The film historians Steve Chibnall and Brian McFarlane praise Comfort's gifts "in the confident exercise of melodramatic impulses in the interests of illuminating character and relationship, in a decorative visual style to serve these impulses, and in giving their heads to string of dominant actors". They add that all of his films "are persuasive narratives, marked by absence of sentimentality and the whiff of human reality".[3]
