He's often referred to as "Eddie Sutherland"; he made more than 50 films between 1925 and 1956. Behind the Front (1926), which starred leads Wallace Beery and Raymond Hatton and established Sutherland as a comedic director, was his breakout film. Stan Laurel, whom he disliked ("I'd rather eat a tarantula than work with Laurel again," he said). On the other hand, he became close friends with the more popularly acerbic W.C. Fields, with whom he formed a lifelong friendship, but they didn't get off to a rocky start. He produced One Night in the Tropics, which was Abbott and Costello's first film appearance. Palmy Days, International House, Too Much Harmony, The Flying Deuces, The Navy Comes Through, Dixie, and Follow the Boys are among the many notable films that have been released.

Sutherland's last directing role was on the Mack & Myer for Hire TV comedies starring Joey Faye and Mickey Deems for Sandy Howard TV Productions and Trans-Lux Television in 1965.
