      Richard Thorpe

      Richard Thorpe

      Highest Rated: 100% Two Girls and a Sailor (1944)

      Lowest Rated: 57% Fun in Acapulco (1963)

      Birthday: Feb 24, 1896

      Birthplace: Hutchinson, Kansas, USA

      Actor who turned to directing in 1923, progressing from low-budget material to more prestigious productions like the MGM "Tarzan" cycle. Proficient to the point of boredom ("His reputation for needing only one take is why we don't remember his films," quipped James Mason), Thorpe spent 33 years of his 45-year career with MGM and was immensely prolific and capable in all genres. Highlights include "Night Must Fall" (1938), "The Great Caruso" (1951), three Robert Taylor swashbucklers ("Ivanhoe" 1952, "Knights of the Round Table" 1954 and "Quentin Durward" 1955) and "Jailhouse Rock" (1957).
