UCLA graduate Lamont Johnson entered show business as an actor. He was busiest on radio, playing the role of Tarzan in a popular syndicated series of the late 1940s. During the first decade of the TV era, Johnson launched a second career as a director, contributing first-rate work to such series as Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Although he directed several theatrical features (which wildly varied in quality - everything form the reprehensible Lipstick to the fine, overlooked western Cattle Annie and Little Britches), Johnson was best known for his TV efforts, notably the Richard Levinson/William Link-produced TV movies My Sweet Charlie (1969) and The Execution of Private Slovik (1974) and his Emmy-winning projects Wallenberg: A Hero's Story (1984) and Gore Vidal's Lincoln (1988).
