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"




Lean's films

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.
