Alfred Green began his career as an actor and director in 1912 in the early days of motion pictures.
He was a pioneer member of the Screen Director's Guild, helming such films as "Disraeli", "The Jolson Story," "The Jackie Robinson Story" and "Top Banana."
He worked with some major stars during his five decades in film, including Bette Davis in 1935 on "Dangerous." Davis was awarded an Oscar for best actress for that movie.
Green was married to Vivian Reed, a silent film actress, and together they had three children.
After retiring from film, Green directed TV episodes of "The Millionaire," "The Lone Wolf" and "General Electric Theater."
