Frederick A. Thomson

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Frederick A. Thomson (1869–1925), sometimes spelled Thompson, was a director of silent films in the United States.[1] He began his directing career in theater.[2]

Thomson was credited by Helen Hayes for enabling her debut in Jean and the Calico Doll. She wrote in her 1968 memoir On Reflection that Thompson persuaded her mother to let her perform in the film for Vitagraph Studios, where he had begun working. The Brooklyn-based troupe traveled by ferry to Fort Lee, New Jersey, to film Jean and the Calico Doll with Maurice Costello and Florence Turner.
