Born Jan 28, 1933. From Los Angeles.
Surrounded by film throughout his life (his father worked for Disney and Warner Brothers and classmates with Francis Ford Coppola), writer-director Jack Hill stopped making films after The Jezebels in 1975. Although Hill directed less than 20 films his cult following, specifically Foxy Brown (1974) and Coffy (1973) in the blaxploitation genre, revived his work in the 1990s. Hill’s student film The Hill (1960) partially influenced Coppola’s Apocalypse Now.
