BACK IN 1971 I SAW A FILM CALLED THE SWIMMER WITH BURT LANCASTER. IT WAS A TRULY FASCINATING FILM, AND I WATCHED IT MANY TIMES. I LEARNED THAT MR. POLLOCK HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH THAT FILM BRIEFLY. UNCREDITED.
THEN THERE WAS THE LONG LIST OF OSCAR CONTENDERS AND STORIES THAT MADE ME
He was in 77 films as himself; he was a cinematographer in one; he was an actor in
32; he produced 47; and he directed 32.
Here is a list of his most notable films as director:
This Property is Condemned 1966 Natalie Wood, Robert Redford
and when he died there were four projects in development. Apparently he had been suffering from cancer the last nine months, which I doubt few people knew. If I had known, I would have sent him a note.
So long for now, sadly...
