Personal Fact of John Sturges

John Eliot Sturges was an American film director known for his westerns and the taut war movies. Commencing his film career in Hollywood in the early 1930s as an editor he went on to direct several training films and documentaries for the United States Army Air Forces during the Second World War. It was only post the war that he began directing mainstream films that included some classics like Bad Day at Black Rock, Ice Station Zebra, The Magnificent Seven, Gunfight at the O.K. Corral and The Great Escape. The latter made an entry to the 3rd Moscow International Film Festival.

His remarkable use of the widescreen Cinema Scope format in the suspense drama Bad Day at Black Rock fetched him an Academy Award nomination for Best Director. He also received nominations as Best Director from the Directors Guild of America apart from a Palme d’Or from the Cannes Film Festival for the film.

His adventure drama The Old Man and the Sea won the Best Foreign Language Film at the Blue Ribbon Awards in Japan. In 1970 he received the Golden Eddie Filmmaker of the Year award from the American Cinema Editors. The Motion Picture & Television Fund conferred him with the Golden Boot Award for his significant contribution over the years to the genre of Westerns.
