A cameraman at Germany's UFA studios in the early 1930s, Benedek also worked as an editor in France and a writer in England before coming to the States in 1937. After having been associate producer on several of producer Joe Pasternak's musicals, he helmed his first feature in 1948, Frank Sinatra's notorious flop, the musical western The Kissing Bandit. In the early 1950s he directed two memorable films for producer Stanley Kramer: the Arthur Miller adaptation Death Of A Salesman with Fredric March, and the motorcycle-gang drama The Wild One with Marlon Brando. Benedek worked frequently in television during the 1950s and '60s. His notable later films include the crime tale Moment Of Danger (aka Malaga) and the thriller The Night Visitor.
