He turned to screenwriting in 1926, then changed his name to Leigh Jason when he started directing in 1928. He turned out numerous shorts and B pictures, mainly thrillers and light comedies, up to the 1950s, when he began to devote most of his energies to directing TV series, although he still directed a feature every now and then. He was the brother of director Will Jason.
