Anthony Harvey


Born - 3 June 1930, London, England
Died - 23 November 2017

Stocky British editor and film-maker, whose directorial career was somewhat disappointing after a brilliant start, as he ventured into rather portentous subjects whose solemnity outweighed their entertainment value. He was a teenage actor (Ptolemy in Caesar and Cleopatra in 1945) who took up editing in his early twenties (often in Boulting Brothers films) and directing some years later: Dutchman (1966), an Oscar nomination for The Lion in Winter (1968), They Might Be Giants (1971), The Glass Menagerie (1973, for TV), The Abdication (1974), Eagle's Wing (1978), Players (1979), Richard's Things (1980) and The Ultimate Solution of Grace Quigley (1984), his last.
