Lindsay Anderson

Biography: An unsuccessful actor in the late 40s and 50s, Lindsay Anderson made far more impact at that time as a highly opinionated film critic, although his judgments, if read nowadays, seem too often to be conservative and conventional. He became an acclaimed documentary film-maker in the mid-50s, in conjunction with his university friends Tony Richardson and Karel Reisz; all three would become feature-film directors in later years. Anderson was the last of the three to make features, and the least prolific in this medium, but his handful of films made a terrific impact - "This Sporting Life" (1963), "If..." (1968), "O Lucky Man!" (1973), "Britannia Hospital" (1982) and "The Whales Of August" (1987). He was busier in the theatre, and in the 50s directed several episodes of the popular "Robin Hood" TV series. Later, he was a prolific director of commercials, and also directed a play by Alan Bennett ("The Old Crowd", 1978) and a two-part TV movie in Canada, "Glory! Glory!" (1989).
