Goodbye Mr. Wise


Robert Wise, legendary film director of The Day the Earth Stood Still, West Side Story and the editor of Citizen Kane died at the age of 91 last week. I had the distinct honor of meeting Mr. Wise at a Los Angeles film workshop in 1996. He agreed to make a cameo appearance in my forthcoming documentary "Maverick in Disguise"

Although many industry insiders claim that Mr. Wise didn't have a signature style, he was a chameleon, directing films in many genres--horror (The Haunting), sci-fi (Star Trek: The Motion Picture), musicals, dramas, and comedies.
