      John Bailey

      John Bailey

      Highest Rated: 95% A Brief History of Time (1992)

      Lowest Rated: 7% License to Wed (2007)

      Birthday: Aug 10, 1942

      Birthplace: Moberly, Missouri, USA

      A superior color cinematographer, John Bailey has enjoyed multi-film associations with directors Lawrence Kasdan (e.g., "The Big Chill" 1981; "The Accidental Tourist" 1988) and Paul Schrader (e.g., "American Gigolo" 1980; "Cat People" 1982). His strong visual sense has leant the proper atmospheric touches to films as diverse as Robert Redford's "Ordinary People" (1980) to Harold Ramis' "Groundhog Day" (1993). With production designer Eiko Ishioka and composer Philip Glass, Bailey shared a prize at Cannes for Best Artistic Contribution for his stunning work on Schrader's "Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters" (1985). He has directed two features, the film adaptation of Lily Tomlin's one-woman show, "The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe" (1991), which he also shot, and "China Moon" (1994). Bailey is married to film editor Carol Littleton. John Bailey died on November 10, 2023 at the age of 81.
