From Wikipedia


Harry Beaumont (February 10, 1888 – December 22, 1966) was an American film director, actor, and screenwriter. He worked for a variety of production companies including Fox, Goldwyn, Metro, Warner Brothers, and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.


Beaumont's greatest successes were during the silent film era, when he directed films including John Barrymore's Beau Brummel (1924) and the silent youth movie Our Dancing Daughters (1928), featuring Joan Crawford.


He then directed MGM's first talkie musical, The Broadway Melody (1929). The latter film won the Best Picture Academy Award that year, and Beaumont was nominated for Best Director.


Beaumont was married to actress Hazel Daly. The couple had twin daughters Anne and Geraldine, born in 1922.


On December 22, 1966, Beaumont died at St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica, California. He was buried in Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Glendale.
