Losey, Joseph


Losey, Joseph
   b. 1909, La Crosse, Wisconsin (USA); d. 1984
   Film-maker
   The son of an American lawyer, Joseph Losey abandoned a medical career for the stage, where his successful direction of Brecht’s Galileo, Galilei brought him an offer from RKO to direct his first feature. After establishing a reputation directing ‘noir’ thrillers, he fell foul of the Committee on Un-American Activities for refusing to abandon shooting Stranger on the Prowl in Italy, and was subsequently blacklisted. Moving to England, he made his bestknown features, The Criminal (1960), The Servant (1963) and The Go-Between (1971). Ultimately a cineaste, his films reflected his passion for European cinema and the theatre. His career was long and highly productive; he directed over thirty features, culminating with an adaptation of Neil Dunn’s play Steaming, released posthumously in 1985.
