From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Harry B. Lachman (June 29, 1886 - March 19, 1975) was a US artist, designer and film director.

Born La Salle, Illinois, Lachman was educated at the University of Michigan before becoming a magazine illustrator. In 1911, he emigrated to Paris where he established a substantial reputation as a post impressionist painter, being awarded the L├ęgion d'Honneur by the French government.

His interest in motion pictures stemmed from his retention as a set-designer in Nice, leading to work on Mare Nostrum in 1925. He worked as a director in France and England before settling in Hollywood in 1933.

Few of his films are notable save for one Laurel and Hardy short and the remarkable Dante's Inferno starring Spencer Tracy. He returned to painting in the 1940s.
