{Editor’s note: these choices are in no particular order. They are my top ten in my view. It would be easy to add another five, all worthy of mention. Of course, there are many others beyond that…but, this is a top ten list.}

Okay. For those who need to know who the other five would be:

Alfred Hitchcock

HitchockonRearWindowset

Sydney Pollack

PollackandRedfordOutofAfrica

Anthony Minghella

{Editor: Honorable mentions to both exceptional directors Martin Scorsese and Mike Nichols.  Favorite Scorsese film “Raging Bull”}

"Raging Bull" still from end of film with actor Robert DeNiro - "you didn't knock me down, Ray"

{” Favorite Nichols film “Wolf.”}

Michelle Pfeiffer and Jack Nicholson in Mike Nichol's "Wolf"; intellectual and witty script albeit traditional over-the-top horror film ending with James Spader - though this arguably is what it should be given the genre.

  1. I didn’t forget him, Don. Another fine director with a long list of great films. These directors are my best. In re Kazan, “A Streetcar Named Desire” with Brando being both the beauty and the beast, and its sad reflection of the life of Blanche DuBois, stays with most people who watch movies in a serious way. His “Baby Doll” is another favorite of mine most people today don’t know.
