Selected Retrospective of his feature-length films
Donald Siegel directed more than 30 feature-length films, shot and worked with the greatest American studios, the greatest actors (Peter Lorre, Ida Lupino, Robert Mitchum, John Wayne, Clint Eastwood). Overhangs around his filmography like a lack of understanding from the general audience and movie lovers, linked to his image of a mercenary director. Yet, Siegel knew, despite all opposition, to compel his touch, in a remarkable and stunning way.
Paris Festival IFF has chosen to honor this fascinating director by screening of a selection of his feature-length films at Grand Action. Several screenings will be presented by film critics Jean-Baptiste Thoret and Serge Chauvin.
20 years after his death, it is time to rediscover Don Siegel.
