Russell Harlan

Highest Rated: 100% A Walk in the Sun (1945)

Lowest Rated: 63% Man's Favorite Sport? (1964)

Birthday: Sep 16, 1903

Birthplace: Los Angeles, California, USA

Outstanding cinematographer whose visual flair bolstered numerous routine westerns before he shot Lewis Milestone's "A Walk in the Sun" (1945), the first in a series of more distinguished productions for directors such as Howard Hawks ("Red River" 1948) and Richard Mulligan ("To Kill a Mockingbird" 1962). Harlan's long, hand-held shot from the back of a car during the bank hold-up in "Gun Crazy" (1949) was a remarkable precursor of the New Wave style which would emerge ten years later.
