Alan Crosland, Jr. (1918 - 2001) directed the two-part episode that launched The Bionic Woman. He also directed some of the most memorable episodes of either show, "The Secret of Bigfoot" and "Kill Oscar."


Crosland is the son of Hollywood director Alan Crosland (1894 - 1936).[1] His father is perhaps best known for directing The Jazz Singer (1927), which was "the first [film] to use spoken dialogue as part of the dramatic action." [2]

Crosland started his own career as a film editor in the 1940s, but eventually found his niche as a television director in the late 1950s. He continued to direct television shows through the 1970s.
