Johnny Hines starred in and wrote the screen play for Conductor 1492, which was directed by his brother, Charles. Beautifully produced by Warner Brothers, this film is a heartfelt and sincere profile of Irish-American immigrant life and boasts excellent sets, location photography, a top notch car chase and climaxes with a spectacular fire sequence. Between 1914 and 1941, Johnny Hines appeared in 87 features. Dan Mason, who plays Terry's dad, was another silent era workhorse, appearing in 108 films.
