Biography by Rovi

An assistant editor in British films, Irvin began making documentaries in the '70s, and in 1980 helmed his first feature, the Frederick Forsyth adaptation The Dogs of War. A sturdy if impersonal craftsman, Irvin also helmed Fred Astaire's final film, the horror tale Ghost Story; the romantic comedy Turtle Diary, scripted by Harold Pinter; and the Vietnam War drama Hamburger Hill.
