Hubert Cornfield was born in Istanbul while his father, a movie-studio sales executive, was in Turkey on business. Attracted to the creative end of the film industry, Cornfield was given his first directorial opportunity with the 1955 second feature Sudden Danger. Getting the most out of the little he was handed in such "B"s as Lure of the Swamp (1957) and Thunder Road (1957), Cornfield attracted the attention of the small, specialized cinema magazines of the 1960s. He began in the 1960s with Angel Baby, a slightly hallucinatory exposé of the faith-healing racket which Cornfield co-directed with TV veteran Paul Wendkos. Cornfield's best film was 1962's Pressure Point, a fictionalized case history of an anti-Semitic murderer (extremely well played by singer Bobby Darin). After directing the bizarre Marlon Brando vehicle Night of the Following Day (1969), Hubert Cornfield moved to France, where he directed and co-wrote Les Grandes Moyens (1976).
