One of our generation's finest filmmakers, Ridley began his career as a set designer for the BBC in the 60's. He soon became a television director working on such Brit shows as Z Cars (1962). He soon began his own company and showed his talent in directing innovative commercials in the 70's. He directed his first film, The Duellists (1977), in 1977. He would follow this up with Alien (1979) and Blade Runner (1982) which are both considered groundbreaking works of the genre. Other classic films directed by Ridley include: Legend (1985), _Black Rain (1989/I)_, Gladiator (2000), Hannibal (2001) and Black Hawk Down (2001). He is considered a legend in the genres we honor.
