Richard Rush

Film Director / Film Producer / Screenwriter | * 04/15/1929 (90) | New York City, New York, USA
Richard Rush (born April 15, 1929 in New York, New York) is an American film director, scriptwriter, and producer. He is best known for the Oscar-nominated The Stunt Man. His other works, however, have been less celebrated. The next best-known of his films is Color of Night — the film won a Golden Raspberry Award as the worst film of 1994, but Maxim magazine also singled the film out as having the Best Sex Scene in film history. Rush, who's directing career began in 1960, also directed Freebie and the Bean, an over-the-top police buddy comedy/drama starring Alan Arkin and James Caan. He co-wrote the screenplay for the 1990 film Air America. ()
