Veteran British director who crafted several fine films in the 1950s, notably the superior tale of the Titanic, "A Night to Remember" (1958). A superior stylist who uses imaginative editing to heighten suspense, Baker hit a critical peak in the 1960s with such varied fare as the offbeat western "The Singer Not the Song" (1960) and the sci-fi favorite, "Quatermass and the Pit" (1967). He turned to TV in the mid-1960s, directing episodes of "Danger Man," "The Saint" and "The Avengers."
