Don Chaffey - Rotten Tomatoes

Don Chaffey



An art director with Gainsborough Pictures by the late 1940s, Chaffey started directing in 1950 with the award-winning children's film The Mysterious Poacher. Although he helmed many adult-oriented features, he remains best known for his work aimed at kids, such as the Disney films The Three Lives of Thomasina and Pete's Dragon. Above all, he brought polish and authenticity to Jason and the Argonauts, the classic fantasy/adventure by special-effects genius Ray Harryhausen.
