      Peter Markle

      Peter Markle

      Highest Rated: 82% Bat 21 (1988)

      Lowest Rated: Not Available

      Birthday: Sep 24, 1952

      Birthplace: Danville, Pennsylvania, USA

      Peter Markle won praise for his debut feature "The Personals" (1982), a sincere study of a man re-entering the dating world after his wife leaves him, and had a surprise hit with the middling teen comedy "Hot Dog...The Movie" (1984). He used his own experiences as a member of the US National Hockey Team as the basis for "Youngblood" (1986), an earnest but pedestrian behind the scenes look at the sport that featured Rob Lowe and Keanu Reeves. Markle had perhaps his best shot with "BAT 21" (1988), a Vietnam War drama about an American officer (Gene Hackman) caught behind enemy lines and the effort to rescue him. Despite earning respectable reviews, few offers for features followed. Instead, Markle turned to the small screen handling the directing chores on a number of made-for-cable efforts including "Nightbreaker" (TNT, 1989), about American soldiers unknowingly used as subjects in atomic tests, and "El Diablo" (HBO, 1990), about a legendary Texas outlaw. By the 90s, he had added TV series to his resume with well-received episodes of "Homicide: Life on the Street," "EZ Streets" and "Moloney."
