Arthur Hiller obituary

18 August 2016 7:05 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Director of Love Story whose Hollywood career spanned 50 years

Arthur Hiller, who has died aged 92, was regarded as a journeyman director, but when a brilliant screenplay, such as Paddy Chayevsky’s The Hospital (1971), came his way, he created a scabrous black comedy. Similarly, when Neil Simon provided him with a witty, original script for The Out of Towners (1970), Hiller once again did it justice. These films and a dozen others stayed in the mind long after his biggest hit, the romantic drama Love Story (1970), had been subsumed into the category of guilty pleasures.

Love Story, a weepy based on the bestselling novel by Erich Segal and starring Ryan O’Neal and Ali MacGraw as lovers struggling to overcome their families’ objections to their union, was the most popular film of its year, with its much-repeated catchphrase: “Love means never having to say you’re sorry.” It was nominated for seven Oscars, »

Daily | Arthur Hiller, 1923 – 2016

18 August 2016 7:04 AM, PDT | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

"Arthur Hiller, an Academy Award-nominated director whose long career began in live television and flourished in the movies in the 1970s with crowd-pleasers like the phenomenally successful Love Story, died on Wednesday in Los Angeles," writes Dave Kehr for the New York Times. As Patrick Hipes notes at Deadline, Love Story would lead "to a streak of big movies for Hiller that spanned especially comedy including The Hospital, penned by Paddy Chayefsky (who also wrote The Americanization of Emily); Silver Streak with Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor; The In-Laws with Peter Falk and Alan Arkin; The Lonely Guy with Steve Martin; and Outrageous Fortune starring Shelley Long and Bette Midler. He also helmed the film adaptations of Neil Simon’s The Out of Towners and Plaza Suite." We're collecting remembrances. » - David Hudson »

Director Arthur Hiller, whose 'In-Laws' was a perfect comedy, dies at 92

17 August 2016 2:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Arthur Hiller was never the coolest filmmaker in the room. He leaves behind a list of films that were genuinely loved by audiences and an ocean of collaborators and friends who speak of him in glowing terms, and honestly, as a storyteller, what more could anyone ask? There’s certainly some cachet in the idea that you’re breaking new ground stylistically or you’re doing things that other people are ripping off or you’re part of some formal movement of deconstructionists. I like plenty of filmmakers who chase cool like it is oxygen, necessary for their entire existence. Arthur Hiller, though, was a meat and potatoes kind of guy, and he made movies that spoke to his optimistic view of who we could be as people, shot through with just a hint of cynicism at times. My personal favorite of his movies is The In-Laws, which I just rewatched a few weeks ago. »

Canadian-born director Arthur Hiller, who spent more than a decade mostly working in television before a career in feature helming that included “Love Story,” “The Americanization of Emily” and comedy “Silver Streak,” died Wednesday. He was 92.

Love Story,” based on the bestseller by Erich Segal, was an enormous box office hit in 1970 and was nominated for seven Oscars, including best picture. Though many critics dismissed the movie as too sentimental, it is No. 9 on the AFI’s list of the most romantic films of all time.

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory's 45th Anniversary: Why Gene Wilder Was Robbed of an Oscar

29 June 2016 3:20 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Thursday is the 45th anniversary of Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, and nearly a half-century later, a specter is haunting pop culture. Gene Wilder deserved an Oscar for this film. Wilder is one of the greatest comic actors of the 20th century, but his turn as Wonka is one of the most finely-tuned feature-length performances from any actor, ever. Wilder's performance in Chocolate Factory careens wildly in tone, veering from charming-if-slightly-off in his first few scenes to downright unhinged and terrifying in the infamous tunnel scene a few scant minutes later. Wilder's Wonka was by design unpredictable, but meticulously planned out by the actor. »
