Daniel Mann

Actor, Director, Writer

1912-1991

A stage and television director by the early '50s, Mann helmed his first feature in 1952. His theater roots paid off with his admired adaptations of William Inge (Come Back, Little Sheba, with Shirley Booth) and Tennessee Williams (The Rose Tattoo, with Anna Magnani). Mann also scored directing actresses Susan Hayward (I'll Cry Tomorrow) and Elizabeth Taylor (Butterfield 8), and actors Marlon Brando (The Teahouse of the August Moon) and Paul Muni (The Last Angry Man). His work since the '60s was more eclectic and less prestigious, but contains such unexpected fun as the spy spoof Our Man Flint and the rat-filled horror tale Willard.
