Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

. . . 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? See more »

Trivia:

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. See more »

Trademark:

He was often regarded as a "women's director" because his films frequently are centered around strong female characters. See more »
