Legend has it that one way to test Ernest Hemingway's reportedly awesome gift for profanity was to mention director Sam Wood; the author was known to have intensely disliked the bowdlerized 1943 film adaptation of his novel, "For Whom the Bell Tolls" as directed by Wood.

Received Oscar nominations for Best Director for "Goodbye, Mr. Chips" (1939), "Kitty Foyle" (1940), and "Kings Row" (1942).
