Russell Simpson

Russell Simpson

Daughter: Roberta Hope (c. 1918)

Erroneously reported in some sources to be the brother of stuntman Barlow Simpson, but U.S. Census records clearly indicate different parents and no readily apparent relationship.

With six Technicolor films through 1939, he apparently holds the record for work in early Technicolor. They include Ramona, Gold is Where you Find it, Heart of the North, Valley of the Giants, Dodge City, and Drums Along the Mohawk.
