Alex Rocco


Born - 19 June 1962, Hollywood, USA
Died - 1 May 2009

A promising American director of the late 1980s and early 1990s, Rocco's career stalled with the undeserved failure of his excellent last film Murder in the First in 1995. He was born Marc King, but took the name of his stepfather, actor Alex Rocco, and became a film production assistant at 18. His first film as director was Scenes from the Goldmine in 1987, followed by Dream a Little Dream in 1989 and Where the Day takes You in 1992. Latterly he had worked as writer and producer, but was preparing a new film as director at the time of his death fom natural causes.
