John Flynn Biography

  • Profession: Director
  • Born: Jan 1, 1931
  • Died: Apr 4, 2007

Serving his apprenticeship as a script supervisor for Robert Wise, John Flynn graduated to the director's chair in 1968, when he helmed the bizarre [[Performer~P67882~Rod Steiger~rodsteiger]] vehicle The Sergeant. Specializing in gutsy actioners, Flynn served as director for such titles as [[Feature~V41967~Rolling Thunder~rollingthunder]] (1977), [[Feature~V13107~Defiance~defiance]] (1979), Lock-Up (1989) and [[Feature~V34376~Nails~nails]] (1992). Occasionally, as in the case of The Outfit, he did double duty as director and screenwriter. One of John Flynn's least typical works was also one of his most successful: the 1980 made-for-TV feature [[Feature~V31457~Marilyn: The Untold Story.~marilyn:theuntoldstory]] ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
