Robert Burgess Aldrich was an American film director, writer and producer, notable for such films as Vera Cruz, Kiss Me Deadly, The Big Knife, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, Hush… Hush, Sweet Charlotte, The Flight of the Phoenix, The Dirty Dozen and The Longest Yard. Film critic John Patterson summarized his career in 2012: "He was a punchy, caustic, macho and pessimistic director, who depicted corruption and evil unflinchingly, and pushed limits on violence throughout his career. His aggressive and pugnacious film-making style, often crass and crude, but never less than utterly vital and alive, warrants – and will richly reward – your immediate attention."
