Filmmaker
    (June 3, 1930-November 23, 2017)
    Born in London, United Kingdom
    Birth name was Anthony Harrison
    Appeared in the film ‘Caesar and Cleopatra’ (1945)
    Edited the films ‘Private’s Progress’ (1956), ‘I’m All Right, Jack’ (1959), ‘The Millionairess’ (1960),, ‘The L-Shaped Room’ (1962), ‘Lolita’ (1962), ‘Dr. Strangelove or: How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Bomb’ (1964) and ‘The Spy Who Came in from the Cold’ (1965)
    Directed the films ‘The Lion in Winter’ (1968), ‘They Might Be Giants’ (1971), ‘The Abdication’ (1974), ‘Players’ (1979) and ‘Grace Quigley’ (1985)
    Directed the TV movies ‘The Glass Menagerie’ (1973), ‘The Disappearance of Aimee’ (1976), ‘Svengali’ (1983) and ‘This Can’t Be Love’ (1994)
    While editing ‘Lolita’ and ‘Dr. Strangelove,’ he frequently butted heads with director Stanley Kubrick: ‘He said that I was becoming more impossible than Peter Sellers.’
    When Katharine Hepburn and Barbara Streisand tied for the 1968 Best Actress Oscar, he (as Hepburn’s proxy) and Streisand walked to the podium together. On the way, he accidentally stepped on and tore her pantsuit.
    He passed on chances to direct ‘Love Story’ and ‘Cabaret’: ‘I let them go out of total indecision. It was a terrible mistake.’
    He won a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.
    The first feature film he directed, ‘The Lion in Winter,’ was a commercial and critical success, was nominated for seven Oscars, and earned him the Directors Guild Award.
    He worked four times with Katharine Hepburn, who called him ‘a real English gentleman and a brilliant director, one of the best I’ve ever worked with.’
