Did You Know?
. . . you direct a couple of successful pictures with women stars, so you become a "woman's director" . . . Direct a sentimental little picture and all you get is sob stuff. I know I've been in and out of those little compartments. Heaven knows everyone has limitations. But why make them narrower than they are?
Interred at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California, in the Garden of Honor, unmarked. (Private area. Not accessible to the general public). Frances Goldwyn [Frances Howard
], wife of mogul Samuel Goldwyn
, is buried next to Cukor at her request because of her long, but unrequited, love for him.
He was often regarded as a "women's director" because his films frequently are centered around strong female characters.
