Personal Quote:

[on taking over the direction of Mutiny on the Bounty (1962)] I thought, "This is one way of getting rich quick--I get the salary and, at most, it couldn't take two or three months".

Trivia:

Directed five Oscar Best Picture nominees: The Racket (1928), All Quiet on the Western Front (1930), The Front Page (1931), Of Mice and Men (1939) and Mutiny on the Bounty (1962), with All Quiet on the Western Front winning Best Picture in 1930. See more »
