English: George Loane Tucker (12 June 1872 – 20 June 1921) was an American film director and screenwriter. He directed 61 films between 1911 and 1921. Tucker had been an actor before moving to directing. In 1913 he directed Traffic in Souls, which concerned the topic of white slavery. The film, over 70 years later, remains an early influential example of realism in early cinema. Tucker continued working in feature productions. He made several films with actress Jane Gail. In 1919 he made what would probably be his most famous and financially successful film, The Miracle Man. This film featured Lon Chaney in a breakout role as a fake cripple. Tucker made one more film after The Miracle Man.
