Director Newton "Newt" Arnold enjoyed a prolific 45-year career as a director, assistant director, and occasional actor, both on television and film. A native Californian, Arnold earned his undergraduate degree at Stanford and went on to U.C.L.A. for his master's degree. It was Arnold's master thesis at U.C.L.A. that reportedly earned him his first job in the entertainment industry. As assistant director, Arnold worked with many esteemed directors, ranging from Steven Spielberg to Francis Ford Coppola. Not surprisingly, due to his numerous credits, Arnold was a member of most of the major talent unions, including the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the Screen Actors Guild, the Directors Guild of America, and the Writers Guild of America. In February 2000, Newton Arnold died at the age of 72, after a prolonged battle with leukemia.
