Jack Raymond (1886–1953) was an English actor and film director.[1] Born in Wimborne, Dorset in 1886, he began acting before the First World War in A Detective for a Day.[2] In 1921 he directed his first film and gradually he wound down his acting to concentrate completely on directing - making more than forty films in total before his death in 1953.[3][1]

He was associated with the Hepworth Studios of Walton on Thames, since his portrait appears on a studio publicity postcard when he was probably in his early twenties.

He had a major success in 1930 with The Great Game, one of the earliest films devoted to football and followed it up with Up for the Cup a year later. He remade Up for the Cup in 1950.[4]
