Dan Curtis

Film Director / Film Producer / Screenwriter | * 08/12/1927 († 78, 03/27/2006) | Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA
Dan Curtis (born Daniel Mayer Cherkoss; August 12, 1927 – March 27, 2006) was an American director, writer, and producer of television and film, known among fans of horror films for his afternoon TV series Dark Shadows and TV films such as Trilogy of Terror. Dark Shadows originally aired from 1966 to 1971 and has aired in syndication for nearly 40 years. Curtis was responsible for the 1991 remake of Dark Shadows, which was canceled because of low ratings due to station pre-emptions concerning the Gulf War. For the general audience, Curtis is also known as the director and producer of the two epic 1980s miniseries The Winds of War and War and Remembrance, based on two novels by Herman Wouk, which follow the lives of two American families through the entirety of World War II.
