Finest Director and Producer
Steven's long Hollywood history, beginning with his apprenticeship with Laurel and Hardy, his God given gift of comedy...RKO...and his yen of strong characterizations, as in "Gunga Din"....and his deep involvement with two of the screen's greatest pairs, in Astaire & Rogers, and Hepburn & Tracy...is just the beginning of his contribution to cinema. As a Colonel, he filmed WW II for Ike....and then joined the post-war neo-realist tradition, to the disappointment of many colleagues...but for him, an opportunity to explore themes on different interpretations of non-violence. "Giant", "Shane", and a "Place in the Sun", were all masterpieces. His stand against the Hollywood blacklist and Otto Preminger seal his just reputation for integrity and artistic freedom....and just when you think George is pigeonholed, he directs his last, this time financially unlucky effort, "The Greatest Story Ever Told", in such a respectful way, that both believer and non-believer would not be offended. What a way to end a career....and what magnificent Hollywood career, was that of George Stevens...capped with 3 Oscars and 15 Oscar nominations.

Love his movies and I have always thought him a brilliant Director. It is really great to see his early shorts because that is where he started to hone his craft as a director. It has been very entertaining to watch his early works.
