H. Bruce "Lucky" Humberstone (November 18, 1901 – October 11, 1984) was a movie actor (as a child), a script clerk, an assistant director, working with directors such as King Vidor, Edmund Goulding and Allan Dwan and, ultimately, a director.
Humberstone was born in Buffalo, New York, and attended Miami Military Academy in Miami, Florida.
One of twenty-eight founders of the Directors Guild of America, Humberstone worked on several silent movie films for 20th Century Fox. Humberstone did not specialize; he worked on comedies, dramas, and melodramas. Humberstone is best known today for the seminal Film noir I Wake Up Screaming (1941) and his work on some of the Charlie Chan films. In the 1950s, Humberstone worked mostly on TV. He retired in 1966.
Humberstone has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
