Laslo Benedek

Highest Rated: 78% The Wild One (1954)

Lowest Rated: 13% The Night Visitor (1970)

Birthday: Mar 05, 1905

Birthplace: Budapest, Austria-Hungary

Began his career at UFA and, after brief stints in France and England, arrived in the US in 1937. Benedek made his directorial debut a decade later with the Frank Sinatra vehicle "The Kissing Bandit" (1948) and teamed up with producer Stanley Kramer twice, for a faithful, if pedestrian adaptation of Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman" (1951) and "The Wild One" (1954), which remains a signature film of the 1950s, largely thanks to the charismatic presence of Marlon Brando as the silent, rebel biker. From the mid-1950s Benedek worked primarily in TV.
