Too many great films to make mention of here but I will say that one after another, Stevens delivered a movie-experience to the viewer that few directors have provided. More than 60 credits as cinematographer (this work was done on short-films, mostly in the silent era and not a few talkies up to 1933); 16 screenplays, 13 films produced and more than 50 movies directed, with 9 Academy Award nominations and 2 Oscars on the shelf and many other awards and nominations to boot. That is enough work for two careers for some people.
He will be remembered always for working with some of the brightest stars, creating deeply moving dramas, tight intelligent comedies, rousing adventures, all of which were wonderfully photographed; thank you George Stevens for so many magical-movie-times.
