Hubert Cornfield Biography

  • Profession: Director, Screenwriter, Producer, Composer (Music Score)
  • Born: Feb 9, 1929
  • Died: Jun 18, 2006

Hubert Cornfield was born in Istanbul while his father, a movie-studio sales executive, was in Turkey on business. Attracted to the creative end of the film industry, Cornfield was given his first directorial opportunity with the 1955 second feature [[Feature~V112176~Sudden Danger~suddendanger]]. Getting the most out of the little he was handed in such "B"s as [[Feature~V100706~Lure of the Swamp~lureoftheswamp]] (1957) and [[Feature~V49836~Thunder Road~thunderroad]] (1957), Cornfield attracted the attention of the small, specialized cinema magazines of the 1960s. He began in the 1960s with [[Feature~V2357~Angel Baby~angelbaby]], a slightly hallucinatory exposé of the faith-healing racket which Cornfield co-directed with TV veteran Paul Wendkos. Cornfield's best film was 1962's [[Feature~V39082~Pressure Point~pressurepoint]], a fictionalized case history of an anti-Semitic murderer (extremely well played by singer Bobby Darin). After directing the bizarre Marlon Brando vehicle [[Feature~V35295~Night of the Following Day~thenightofthefollowingday]] (1969), Hubert Cornfield moved to France, where he directed and co-wrote [[Feature~V156159~Les Grandes Moyens~lesgrandsmoyens]] (1976). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
