A graduate of the Yale Drama School, he began his thirty year career in 1927 as founder and director of the Hampton Players, a summer stock company on Long Island that produced new plays. Several of these plays were later successfully directed by Potter on Broadway.

He was well known for his work on the Broadway stage, e.g. A Bell for Adano, Point of No Return, Ann of the Thousand Days, when he turned to Hollywood to work in the then-new medium of talking pictures.

He directed a number of films in Hollywood, beginning with Beloved Enemy (1936). His last film was the 1957 Top Secret Affair, a/k/a Their Secret Affair. In all, he directed 19 major motion pictures for the big studios, e.g. United Artists, Paramount, Walt Disney, Warner Bros., Samuel Goldwyn, Columbia, and RKO.

He came from a family of educators and clergy, including three Episcopal bishops.  -30-
