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.

Trivia:

He directed six different performers in Oscar-nominated performances: Robert Ryan, Gloria Grahame, Tom Tully, Humphrey Bogart, Katy Jurado and Elizabeth Taylor. See more »
