Personal Quote:

[on director Henry Hathaway, for whom Dmytryk worked as an editor at the beginning of his career] He was an experience--like a case of smallpox. If you get it you either die or get over it. Once over it, you're immune forever. People hated him and quit, or grew to love him . . . I've seen him stop a carpenter to show him how to carry a plank. See more »

Trivia:

Although Dmytryk's films for RKO in the 1940s were very profitable and elicited much favorable comment, he was generally treated like a B director by his home studio. The only film for which he received a Best Director Oscar nomination - RKO's "Crossfire" (1947) - was shot in 20 days on a paltry budget of $250,000. See more »
