Paul Almond        CAN        1931-2015

 

Canadian director

whose television film “Seven Up!”

examined the lives of a group

of midcentury British children

and became the basis

of the documentary series

that has followed them

into middle age

 

(...)

 

One of the most highly regarded

documentaries of all time,

the “Up” series,

as it is collectively known,

is most closely associated

with Michael Apted,

who directed all

but the inaugural installment.

 

But it was Mr. Almond

who helped conceive that film,

first shown on British television

in 1964.

 

Forty minutes long

and shot in black and white,

“Seven Up!” examined

the enduring British class system

through the lives of 14 7-year-olds

from across the socioeconomic

spectrum.

 

He can be heard

asking the children

— 10 boys and four girls —

questions about family, love

and adult aspirations.

Abraham Polonsky        USA        1910-1999

 

director and screenwriter

who was an early Hollywood

master of film noir

and who worked

under many disguises

after being blacklisted

in the McCarthy era

 

(...)

 

His movies

included

''Force of Evil,''

a 1948 film

about racketeering

in which he directed

the actor

John Garfield.

 

In 1996

Stephen Holden,

the New York Times film critic,

describing

that performance and others,

wrote that ''you can still feel

the dangerous urban-realist kick''

although the work came from

''a time when Hollywood films

still aspired to a genteel,

upper-middle-class

sense of values.''

 

The previous year,

Mr. Polonsky had won

an Oscar nomination

for writing the screenplay

for ''Body and Soul,''

in which Garfield played

a money-mad boxer.

 

In the early 1950's,

Mr. Polonsky

refused to testify

about his Communist

Party affiliations

or name party members.

 

His refusal

prompted

20th Century Fox

to fire him.

 

He was then

unable to find work

under his own name

for nearly two decades;

he had only nine films

to his credit.

Leslie Clark Stevens IV        USA        1924-1998

 

(...) writer,

director and producer

who achieved success

on Broadway,

in Hollywood

and on television

with plays like

''The Marriage-Go-Round,''

films like

''The Left-Handed Gun''

and television series like

''The Outer Limits''

 

(...)

 

Mr. Stevens

first made his mark

Off Broadway

in 1953 with ''Bullfight,''

and after several

other productions

he succeeded on Broadway

with the 1958 comedy

''The Marriage-Go-Round.''

 

That same year,

he went to Hollywood

and wrote, co-produced

and directed his first film,

''Private Property.''

 

This inspection

of a Don Juan

who plots the seduction

of a well-to-do housewife

was a success

that brought Mr. Stevens

to 20th Century Fox to adapt

''The Marriage-Go-Round''

(1960).

Shirley Clarke        USA        1919-1997

 

Dancer, bride, runaway wife,

radical filmmaker and pioneer

— Shirley Clarke is one

of the great undertold stories

of American independent cinema.

 

A woman working

in a predominantly male world,

a white director who turned

her camera on black subjects,

she was a Park Avenue rich girl

who willed herself to become

a dancer and a filmmaker,

ran away to bohemia,

hung out with the Beats

and held to her own vision

in triumph and defeat.

 

She helped inspire

a new film movement

and made urgently

vibrant work that blurs

fiction and nonfiction,

only to be marginalized,

written out of histories

and dismissed

as a dilettante.

Fred Zinnemann        AUS / USA        1907-1997

 

director who grappled

with issues of moral courage

in such Academy

Award-winning films

as ''From Here to Eternity''

in 1953

and ''A Man for All Seasons''

in 1966 (...)

 

Mr. Zinnemann

also filmed ''The Search,''

a poignant 1948 account

of the plight

of Europe's war orphans;

 

''The Men,'' Carl Foreman's

compassionate 1950 study

of paraplegic veterans,

and Foreman's suspenseful

western ''High Noon,''

which won

the 1952 best-director

and best-movie awards

from the New York critics.

 

''From Here to Eternity,''

Dalton Trumbo's

forceful adaptation

of James Jones's novel

about the prewar Army,

won eight Oscars

and earned Mr. Zinnemann

best-director awards

from both

the New York Film Critics

and the Screen Directors Guild.

 

''A Man for All Seasons,''

Robert Bolt's drama

about Sir Thomas More's

steadfast defiance of Henry VIII,

won six Academy Awards

and the best-director

and best-movie awards

from the New York critics.

 

At the core

of Mr. Zinnemann's

finest films

lay a crisis

of moral courage

that challenged

a character

to face his conscience

and test his integrity.

Lindsay Gordon Anderson        UK        1923-1994

 

Lindsay Anderson's

tragedy

was that his combative

temperament,

allied with a total

refusal to compromise,

resulted in so many battles

and so few films.

 

His natural domain

was the moral

high ground,

from which

he looked down

at everyone else

with the arrogance

of a cultural laird.

 

Ask anyone

who knew Anderson

or had dealings with him

and one word tends

to spring to mind - 'prickly'.

 

He was a difficult man,

but intensely likeable

and invigorating to be with;

and he may well have been

the single most

important individual

in the post-war British

cinema.

Over three decades

Derek Jarman

had carved out

a reputation

as Britain's leading

experimental film-maker,

an artist-poet of the screen

who gave us films

such as Sebastiane,

Caravaggio

and The Garden.

Martin Ritt        USA        1914-1990

 

director admired

for making films

that explored

moral choices

and reflected

concern for racially

and economically

oppressed people

 

(...)

 

Beginning in 1957,

Mr. Ritt directed

and occasionally

co-produced

25 diverse films,

including

"Edge of the City,"

"The Long Hot Summer,"

"Hud,"

"The Spy Who Came In From the Cold,"

"Sounder,"

"Pete 'n' Tillie,"

"Norma Rae,"

"Murphy's Romance,"

"Nuts"

and "Stanley and Iris."

 

Most of his films

were quietly

moving studies

of human relationships,

punctuated

by periodic hits

that gave the husky,

tough-minded director

freedom to deal

with social issues

and the alienation

of outsiders.

Vincente Minnelli        USA        1903-1986

 

Vincente Minnelli ('s)

deft intermingling

of song, dance and plot

made him one

of the greatest directors

of Hollywood musicals,

 

(...)

 

Mr. Minnelli

won an Academy Award

for directing ''Gigi'' in 1958.

 

The prize was one

of nine Oscars for the picture,

the most any movie

had won until then.

 

Among the other

Oscars for ''Gigi''

was the one

for best film of the year,

which Mr. Minnelli's 1951 movie

''An American in Paris''

also received.

 

The director's

other notable film musicals

included

''The Band Wagon'' (1953),

''Meet Me in St. Louis'' (1944)

and ''The Pirate'' (1948).

 

The latter two starred

the tempestuous

singer-actress

Judy Garland,

to whom he was married

from 1945 to 1951.

 

Their daughter, Liza,

inherited Mr. Minnelli's

large dark eyes

and Miss Garland's

stage talents

and won

an Academy Award herself,

for her performance

in ''Cabaret'' (1972).

Dalton Trumbo        USA        1905-1976

 

Trumbo (...)

for contempt of Congress

in 1947

when they refused to testify

about their political beliefs

before the House Un-American

Activities Committee;

 

he served

11 months in prison

and was effectively unable

to continue working

in the film industry.

Alice Guy-Blaché        FR / USA        1873-1968

 

(...) starting in 1896,

she made

around 1,000 films,

constantly pushing visual

and thematic boundaries.

 

She experimented

with early synchronized sound,

color and special effects.

 

She explored

gender, race and class.

 

And she inspired

future giants

like Sergei Eisenstein,

Alfred Hitchcock

and Agnès Varda.

Counting shorts

and feature-length movies,

she directed at least 138 films

— all before 1940.

 

She became

the first American woman

to direct a feature-length

dramatic film

with The Merchant of Venice

in 1914.

 

"In her day,

she was considered

one of the three great minds

of the early film industry,

alongside D.W. Griffith

and Cecil B. DeMille,"

says Shelley Stamp,

a film historian

at the University

of California, Santa Cruz.
