Born in Pennsylvania in 1924, Lumet’s directing career began on Broadway and thrived in television. His first feature was 1957’s Twelve Angry Men, which set the path for Lumet’s high quality and proficiency from thereon.
His vast canon of work includes Dog Day Afternoon (‘75), Network (‘76), Prince of the City (’81) and The Verdict (‘82), resulting in five Oscar nominations.
His later work has been spotty, ranging from A Stranger Among Us (’92), to Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead (’07), but Lumet continues to be greatly respected in the industry for his output and talents.
