      William Graham

      Highest Rated: 10% Change of Habit (1969)

      Lowest Rated: Not Available

      Birthday: May 15, 1926

      Birthplace: New York, New York, USA

      William A. Graham built a sturdy career directing major television series and a string of TV movies, in addition to some noteworthy features including Elvis Presley's final film, "Change of Habit." In the mid-1950s, Graham entered the world of television, helming episodes of drama anthology series such as "Kraft Theatre," the proving ground for such other directors as George Roy Hill and Sidney Lumet. He next directed small screen films such as "Swiss Family Robinson" before becoming a regular on popular crime series of the era such as "Naked City" and "The Fugitive." In 1969, he directed Elvis's final feature, "Change of Habit," notably removing the grease and combing down the star's hair and urging him to act more naturally in the method acting style. From the '70s, he shifted almost exclusively into television movies, often directing several per year and earning an Emmy nomination for his work on "Guyana Tragedy: The Story of Jim Jones," featuring Powers Boothe as the notorious cult leader. In a rare late career big screen outing, he earned the dubious distinction of two Razzie Award nominations (Worst Director and Worst Picture) for "Return to the Blue Lagoon," starring Milla Jovovich. He also made a brief return to episodic TV on the hugely popular sci-fi mystery drama "The X-Files" and the remake of the classic manhunt tale "The Fugitive."
