William Crain

William Crain (born June 20, 1949) is an American film and television director. He was one of the first black filmmakers from a major film school to achieve commercial success. Crain was born in Columbus, Ohio. A graduate of UCLA's film school, Crain, unlike many of the so called, "L.A. Rebellion" filmmakers who made films of a deeply personal or political nature, his work consisted almost entirely of mainstream and genre driven works. In 1972, he directed Blacula. While largely ignored by critics, the film has become somewhat of a cult favorite.
