Background
Daniel B. Clark (c. 1890-1960) was the head cinematographer for Tom Mix Productions and later Head of Production for 20th Century Fox Studio. He was the photographer for “Air Circus” by Howard Hughes, a film for which Cloverfield, now at the Santa Monica Airport, was built. He won two Oscars for technical achievement. The first movie he directed was “Charlie Chaplin at the Circus.” Outside of his career in the film and fledgling television industries in Hollywood, Daniel Clark was a Golden Glove champion, a sparring partner of Tom Mix and Jack Dempsey. He bought property in Arrowhead, California before the lake existed, and also orchard property in Spring Grove, San Bernardino County.
