British film and television producer and editor. Born in London, Cole entered films at Stoll Picture Productions. His work as a film editor started in the 1930s. In 1932, he and Thorold Dickinson co-edited Naval D. Gandhi’s Shikari, a Hindustani film shot in India with Indian actors based on an Indian story and produced by Eastern Films Limited, Bombay. He later collaborated with Dickinson in films made on the Spanish Civil War and also edited Dickinson’s famous film, Gaslight(1940). He died in London at the age of 90.

The above findings are part of the research which ensued in the project – A Hidden Heritage: Indo-British Film Collaboration (1930-1951)
