The Filmmakers


1 March 1954, Duncan, Oklahoma, USA

Most television fans learned about Ron Howard via Happy Days, but those of us who are movie fan know he has move on to filmmaking. Ron Howard is an underdog director; he should make the top ten or twenty best directors of all time but he just misses the mark. I think it that way because he puts out films like A Beautiful Mind, which is arguably his best work. Then on the other hand, a crappy film comes down the pipeline. He may have some pretty crappy movies but he always fines away to redeem himself, sometimes these redemptions lead to Oscar nominations. Ron Howard will rank in my favorites director even thought to the world see him as a “above average” director.



They Shoot Pictures, Don’t They?
