David Lean 1908-1991
(...) British director
of both intimate films
like "Brief Encounter"
and "Great Expectations"
and epics like
"Bridge on the River Kwai"
and "Lawrence of Arabia"
won 28 Academy Awards,
including seven each for
"Bridge on the River Kwai" (1957)
and "Lawrence of Arabia" (1962).
He received best-director Oscars
for "River Kwai" and "Lawrence,"
and both films also won
the Academy Award as best movie.
Lean was a meticulous craftsman
noted for technical wizardry,
subtle manipulation of emotions,
superb production values,
authenticity and taste.
He was one of the very few director
who edited his own films,
and he also adapted or co-adapted
half a dozen of them.
