  • One of the earliest alumni of New York's New School of Social Research, director Joseph Sargent spent his first professional decade in television. His first theatrical "feature" was One Spy Too Many (1966), an expansion of one of his Man From U.N.C.L.E. episodes. In both his small-screen work and his large-screen output, Sargent's work was distinguished by speed, efficiency, and equitable treatment of talented ensemble casts. Joseph Sargent's best features include The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1974) and MacArthur (1977); his best TV films include Tribes (1970), Maybe I'll Come Home in the Spring (1971), and the multipart Lonesome Dove sequel Streets of Laredo (1995). He continued to direct mostly TV movies through the rest of his career, his final credit being Sweet Nothing in My Ear in 2008. Sargent died in 2014, at age 89.
