William Wyler is one of the most accomplished and respected filmmakers in the history of American cinema. During his 45-year career he directed over 50 features, received 12 Academy Awards nominations and three wins for Best Director, and collected prizes from BAFTA, Cannes, the Directors Guild of America, and the Golden Globes to boot. A great indicator of the esteem for Wyler within the film world is the fact that he was the fourth-ever recipient of the American Film Institute’s Lifetime Achievement Award, after only John Ford, James Cagney and Orson Welles.
