Arthur Hiller (13 November 1923 to 17 August 2016) was a journeyman director, an old pro, product of the later Golden Age, who could, from time to time, rise above his material.
Obviously, we will pass over the bulk of his films, which were from hunger. We make no shot at him for this – after all, only the folks at The Varnished Culture are completely disinterested,
But we honour Arthur for his staunch work down the years, and particularly The Americanization of Emily (1964), Popi (1969), The Hospital (1971), Plaza Suite (1971), The Man in the Glass Booth (1975), The Silver Streak (1976), The In-Laws (1979) and Outrageous Fortune (1987).
