Lowest Rated: 56% Final Analysis (1992)

Birthday: Feb 20, 1935

Birthplace: Los Angeles, California, USA

Jordan Cronenweth was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1978, yet though often fighting pain, he not only continued to work as one of Hollywood's premiere directors of photography into the 90s, but also did some of his most innovative work after the diagnosis. Cronenweth is best recalled for his hallucinogenic lighting of "Altered States" (1980), the luminous and yet at the same time neo-expressionistic lighting of Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner" (1982), which won the Best Cinematography BAFTA Award, and Francis Ford Coppola's "Peggy Sue Got Married" (1986), which earned an Oscar nomination for his elegiac use of lighting that bespoke time, mood, place, and remembrance.
