Welcome to the official site for director William Witney

Over the years, William Witney built a legacy, which continues to this day. Many articles have been written and many stories have been told, all of which are accessible on the web. Links for many of these are provided throughout this site. 

If you are new to the site the BIO page is a good place to start.


As his son, I now feel compelled to tell “the rest of the story” so to speak about my motion picture family. Within this site you will find personal stories about my parents, William Witney and Maxine Doyle, as well as pictures from the Witney archives. Links to other family members in the business are also included.

As time goes by this site will be updated as I post more photos, stories and memorabilia from my family archives, which may be of interest. Just a warning that some of the personal stories may contain some “spicy” language – I’m just telling it like it was.


If you have any comments, feel free to send an e-mail or sign our guest book through the ‘contact’ page. If you would like to purchase books by William Witney, please click on this ‘store’ page link.  And... Please feel free to sign our guest book.

By the way, Dad always liked to tell me that the reason there's no "h" in our last name was because we couldn't afford it---family joke!


That’s a “wrap” for this home page. I hope you enjoy the site and thank you for being a fan!
