Biography

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
Writer/director/producer Richard Compton was born on March 2, 1938, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He began his career in the early 60s making government propaganda movies for the United States Information Agency. His debut feature The French Way was never released in America.
