Fred Zinnemann Movies



A former aspiring musician and law student born in Austria, Fred Zinnemman found himself in Hollywood in the early 1930s, where he made a number of B-movies before scoring a hit with ‘The Seventh Cross’ (1944) and earning his first Academy Award nomination for ‘The Search’ (1948). But it wasn’t until the next decade that he hit his stride with his revisionist Western ‘High Noon,’ and went on to direct highly acclaimed and commercially successful films for the next two decades, several of which have become all-time classics. Over the course of the next three decades, he would direct stunning films in genres as varied as thrillers, Westerns, film noir and even musicals. The winner of two Oscars and director of some of Hollywood’s biggest hits, Zinnemann left behind a legacy as one of cinema’s most accomplished filmmakers.
