Filmmaker
    (October 26, 1912-April 20, 1991)
    Worked on editing for 'Casablanca (1942)'
    Directed 'The Verdict (1946),' 'Riot in Cell Block 11 (1954),' 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956),' 'Hell is for Heroes (1962),' 'The Killers (1964),' 'Death of a Gunfighter (1969),' 'Dirty Harry (1971),' 'Charley Varrick (1973),' 'The Shootist (1976),' 'Escape from Alcatraz (1979)' and 'Jinxed (1982)'
    Directed two episodes of 'The Twilight Zone'
    He was divorced.
    He wrote an autobiography.
    He fought with Bette Midler during filming of 'Jinxed.'
    He said: 'Most of my pictures, I'm sorry to say, are about nothing, because I'm a whore. I work for money. It's the American way.'
    He was so disappointed at how 'Death of a Gunfighter' came out, that he ordered his name be taken off of it. The generic alias 'Alan Smithee' was slapped on in its place.
    He attended Cambridge University.
    He heavily influenced Clint Eastwood.
    Eastwood dedicated 'Unforgiven' to him.
    As a film editor, he earned a reputation for his unique montage sequences.
    He directed 'The Killers' for TV, but it was so good that it was released to theaters (1964).
    He had the ability to turn a dumb script into something interesting.
