RATE AND COMMENT

BIOGRAPHY

Producer-director-writer who formed his own production company in 1952 and helmed 14 films between 1952 and 1982. A filmmaker with a mystical bent, a love of nature and an interest in minorities and the oppressed, Bartlett got off to a good start with his first feature, "Navajo" (1952), the story of a Native American boy who runs away from white culture when he is dragged off to school and eventually outwits his pursuers. He followed up with the first of three films to feature footballer Elroy Hirsch, "Crazylegs" (1953), with the former running back playing himself.
