Active in the British film industry from 1929 on, camera operator Guy Green became a full director of photography in 1944. His specialty was brooding, cloud-swept period pieces like Blanche Fury (1947), Oliver Twist (1948) and Madeleine (1950). In 1954, he became a director with the modest but attractively shot River Boat (1954). Green's finest work as a director can be seen in such 1960s dramas as The Angry Silence (1960), The Mark (1961) and A Patch of Blue (1965), each of which centered around a profoundly disturbed social outcast. Once he set up shop in Hollywood, Green abandoned the austerity of his earlier works in favor of the garishly budgeted and ponderously executed The Magus (1968) and Jacqueline Susann's Once is Not Enough (1975). In 1985, Guy Green made his American TV-movie bow with Strong Medicine.
