Irving Rapper

Hollywood director


Irving Rapper was born in London, England. He went to Hollywood in the early Thirties as a dialogue coach. He was never one of cinema's greatest stylists but he had a good ear for an unforgettable line.

According to William J. Mann, Behind the Screen (2001), pp. 176-80, Rapper had a relationship with Roland Wheaton.

Rapper died in Woodland Hill, California, at the remarkable age of 101, of natural causes.


His work include:

  • Now, Voyager (1942)
  • The Brave One (1956)
  • An American in Paris
