Gilbert Taylor, Star Wars cinematographer, dies aged 99

23 August 2013 6:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Taylor worked with some of Hollywood's greats including Alfred Hitchcock, Roman Polanski and George Lucas

The renowned British cinematographer Gilbert Taylor, whose body of work included Star Wars, The Omen and Dr Strangelove, has died.

Taylor passed away at his home on the Isle of Wight aged 99 after a life which saw him credited with some of Hollywood's most acclaimed films.

While his work included Ice Cold in Alex, the Beatles' film A Hard Day's Night and Alfred Hitchcock's Frenzy, he is best known for the first of George Lucas's Star Wars series.

"George avoided all meetings and contact with me from day one," Taylor told American Cinematographer magazine. "So I read the extra-long script many times and made my own decisions as to how I would shoot the picture."

His career in the film industry started in 1929 when he was still a teenager and was taken on »

‘Star Wars’ Cinematographer Gilbert Taylor Dies

23 August 2013 2:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Veteran British cinematographer Gilbert Taylor, whose b&w cinematography on such classics as Richard Lester’s 1964 Beatles film “A Hard Day’s Night,” Stanley Kubrick’s “Dr. Strangelove” and Roman Polanski’s “Repulsion” rank him as one of Britain’s most revered post-war DPs, died earlier today at his home on the Isle of Wight. He was 99.

His wife Dee told BBC News that he passed away with his family at his bedside.

While the Hertfordshire native’s Dp credits date back to 1948, he hit his stride in the mid-’60s with Lester’s pioneering ode to the Fab Four, a pre-curser to MTV-era pop vids of the ’80s; Kubrick’s black comedy on the Cold War, with the stark chiaroscuro of the War Room accented by a ring of lights and back-projected lamps; and two seminal collaborations with Polanski (the other film was “Cul-de-sac”) that earned him back-to-back BAFTA nominations. »

Steve Forrest obituary

26 May 2013 3:39 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Hollywood actor best known for his starring role as Lieutenant Dan 'Hondo' Harrelson in the 70s cop series S.W.A.T.

Steve Forrest, who has died aged 87, was a product of the Hollywood studio system, then at its tail end in the 1950s. Although MGM had the handsome, rugged 6ft 3in actor under contract for five years, from 1952 to 1957, they gave him few chances to shine. It was only when he left the studio that Forrest got bigger and better parts in feature films – one of his best performances was as the white brother of Elvis Presley, who plays the son of a Native American mother and a Texas rancher father, in Don Siegel's excellent western Flaming Star (1960) – and he was able to start a long and busy career on television.

In fact, it was on the small screen that Forrest would build his fame, notably in S.W.A.T. (1975- »
