Fresh out of N.Y.U., Irwin Winkler landed a job as a messenger at the William Morris Agency, remaining with the firm in various capacities for six years. In 1966, Winkler became a film producer, forming a long and lucrative partnership with [[Performer~P84744~Robert I. Chartoff~robertchartoff]]. The new team started modestly enough with an amusing [[Performer~P107032~Elvis Presley~elvispresley]] vehicle, [[Feature~V14470~Double Trouble~doubletrouble]] (1967). Then followed a remarkable series of financial and critical successes, including [[Feature~V49427~They Shoot Horses, Don't They?~theyshoothorsesdontthey]] (1969), [[Feature~V34867~The New Centurions~thenewcenturions]] (1971), and all five [[Feature~V41846~Rocky~rocky]] films. Winkler has picked up an Academy award for [[Feature~V41846~Rocky~rocky]] (1976), earned Oscar nominations for [[Feature~V40104~Raging Bull~ragingbull]] (1981), The Right Stuff (1984), and [[Feature~V20351~Goodfellas~goodfellas]] (1990), and has won scores of international film awards. Extending his activities to television, he has served as executive producer of the weekly series MacGyver and Monty. He added directing to his list of accomplishments with 1991's Guilty by Suspicion, which he also wrote. Irwin Winkler has since co-written and directed [[Feature~V35187~Night and the City~nightandthecity]] (1992) and The Net (1995). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
