Harold D. Schuster ( August 1, 1902 – July 19, 1986) was an American editor and film director.[1] In 1937 he made Wings of the Morning, the first-ever three-strip Technicolor film shot in Europe.[2]

While the majority of Schuster's directorial output can be considered routine, there are two acknowledged gems among them. His 1954 film noir thriller Loophole is a fast-paced, well-acted drama about a bank teller framed for a $50,000 embezzlement and his efforts to clear his name, and his 1957 Dragoon Wells Massacre is, despite its potboiler title, an actionful, tightly made western with some surprising plot twists in which many of the characters aren't quite what they seem to be.
