1908 – 1999
Who was Edward Dmytryk?
In 1947 he was named as one of the Hollywood Ten, a group of blacklisted film industry professionals who refused to testify to the House Un-American Activities Committee in their investigation during the McCarthy-era 'Red scare'. They served time in prison for being in contempt of Congress. In 1951 Dmytryk did testify to HUAC, and rehabilitated his career.
First hired again by independent producer Stanley Kramer in 1952, Dmytryk is likely best known for directing his The Caine Mutiny, a critical and commercial success. The second highest-grossing film of the year, it was nominated for Best Picture and several other awards at the 1955 Oscars. Dmytryk was nominated for a Directors Guild Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Motion Pictures.
