Hill, George Roy
▪ 2003

      American director, writer, and actor (b. Dec. 20, 1922, Minneapolis, Minn.—d. Dec. 27, 2002, New York, N.Y.), enjoyed for a time the distinction of being the only director to have two films on the list of the top 10 moneymakers—Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969) and The Sting (1973), the latter of which counted best picture and best director awards among its Oscars. He was an actor and wrote radio soap operas before he turned to television—for which he included the writing, producing, and directing of the Emmy Award-winning A Night to Remember (1956) and the directing of Judgment at Nuremberg (1959) among his credits—and the direction of such Broadway plays as Look Homeward, Angel (1957) and Period of Adjustment (1960), whose film version (1962) marked his debut as a motion picture director.
