Wore a suit and tie every day while directing until the 1970s, when he began to dress in casual work clothes. His wife claimed he didn't like choosing what to wear, and had a wardrobe full of identical shirts and pants. See more »

Trademark:

Frequently uses strong primary colors in his cinematography and sharp contrast between black and white. See more »
