Ken Annakin, best known for directing the 1965 World War II epic “The Battle of the Bulge,” died Wednesday at his Beverly Hills home. He was 94.

Annakin’s daughter, Deborah Peters, said her father had a heart attack and stroke within a day of each other in February.

The British native’s 50-year career also included “Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines,” for which he received an Academy Award nomination (shared with Jack Davies) for original screenplay.

Annakin also directed “The Call of the Wild,” a 1972 adaptation of Jack London’s adventure; Disney live-action films “The Story of Robin Hood and his Merrie Men” (1952), “The Sword and the Rose” (1953), “Swiss Family Robinson” (1960) and “The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking” (1986); and “The Longest Day” (1962).

In the 1962 films “The Fast Lady” and “Crooks Anonymous,” Annakin directed Julie Christie’s first film appearances. His personal favorite was “Across the Bridge” (1957), starring Rod Steiger »
