Norman Jewison

Legendary director Norman Jewison died today at the age of 97. He was one of the new breed of directors to emerge out of Hollywood in the 1960s and 1970s, and a very versatile and creative talent. Five of his films earned Best Picture Oscar nominations, two of which are already on this blog: "In the Heat of the Night" and "Fiddler on the Roof", and you can read more about his life and career in both of those posts. Just click on the titles to open them. He will be greatly missed.
