Lawrence Trimble

Lawrence Trimble came to England in 1913, when Jan was a year old, to make films with the comedian John Bunny. He liked the country so much that he stayed well into the First World War to make British pictures. He became a close friend of the pioneer Cecil Hepworth, and worked at Hepworth's studio in Walton-on-Thames. Laurence Trimble formed a company with another American, Florence Turner, and directed My Old Dutch (1915) and Far From the Madding Crowd (1916). He and Jan returned to America in 1916, braving the U-boats - their ship was sunk on its way back to England. more..
