  • One of the Top 5 Directors

    • David Atkins
    • 2011-03-09

    William Wyler is one of the top 5 Directors in my book*, and directed many a top star such as Laurence Olivier, Bette Davis, Frederic March, Audrey Hepburn, Gregory Peck, Jennifer Jones. Peter O Toole, Myrna Loy. Stars such as Barbra Steisand, Charlton Heston, Olivia De Havilland, among many others won Oscars under his direction. A favorite Wyler movie is Gary Cooper's Friendly Persuasion "thou swell", and my least favorites are his last films the Liberation of LB Jones and The Collector. Bette Davis who worked with Wyler in Jezebel and Little Foxes and her masterpiece The Letter, claimed Wyler was her greatest director and the great love of Bette's life. Wyler's peer Billy Wilder claimed Wyler's Best Years of Our Lives the finest directed film he ever saw! Wyler's Mrs. Miniver won Greet Garson an Oscar is credited by Churchill as being an important PR vehicle for Britain fighting Nazi's. An astounding Body of Work *Wilder, Lean, Wyler, Eastwood, Ford

  • The Master Hollywood director

    This master of film direction is so good that you can't see the directing in his films. One of the best at bringing stage plays to the screen, "Dead End", "Jezebel", "The Letter", "The Little Foxes", "The Heiress", "Detective Story", "Funny Girl" etc. he managed to make even the most stagebound play filmic on screen. So many actors won Academy Awards in his films: Bette Davis, Fay Bainter, Greer Garson, Teresa Wright, Fredric March, Olivia de Havilland, Audrey Hepburn, Charlton Heston, Barbra Streisand and dozens received nominations from their roles in his films. Wyler himself won three Best Director Oscars. His body of work stands up today as the most literate, sophisticated group of films by any Hollywood director.

    the body of work is astounding he holds just about every oscar record as far as directors go the camera he devised with gregg toland is amazing and his films always stand out as very adult and maybe that is why so many are still revered today
