Ulu Grosbard, Broadway and Film Director, Dies at 83

Thu, Mar 22, 2012
Rose Gregorio, Mr. Grosbard’s wife, was “one of the most entertaining, most intelligent and most thoroughly satisfying commercial American films in a very long time,” Vincent Canby wrote in The New York Times. Mr. Grosbard’s other films included the 1968 adaptation of “The Subject Was Roses,” which starred Mr. Albertson, Mr. Sheen and Patricia Neal; “Who Is Harry Kellerman and Why Is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me?” (1971), a less-than-successful comedy-drama starring Mr. Hoffman about a brooding rock composer; “Straight Time” (1978), an underappreciated character study of a released convict (Mr. Hoffman again) who is unable to stay on the straight and narrow; “Falling in Love” (1984), a tale of midlife romance that stared Mr. De Niro and Meryl Streep; “Georgia” (1995), a story of two sisters with Jennifer Jason Leigh and Mare Winningham; and “The Deep End of the Ocean” (1999), with Michelle Pfeiffer and Treat Williams, about the life of a family after the kidnapping of the youngest son. Mr. Grosbard, who lived for many years in Greenwich Village, was born on Jan. 9, 1929, in Antwerp, Belgium, where his parents, Morris and Rose, ran a haberdashery and named their second son Israel. (Ulu was a childhood nickname that stuck, given to him by his older brother, Jack.) The family fled the Nazis and waited out the war in Havana, where young Ulu worked as a diamond cutter. When the family was finally allowed into the United States, he earned a B.A. and an M.A. in English from the University of Chicago and went on to Yale Drama School before serving in the Army in the mid-1950s. His apprentice work as a director was on some high-profile films, assisting Robert Rossen on “The Hustler,” Elia Kazan on “Splendor in the Grass” and Arthur Penn on “The Miracle Worker.” He earned his first New York stage directing credit in 1962 with an Off Broadway play by William Snyder, “The Days and Nights of Beebee Fenstermaker,” about a young woman struggling with a new life in the city, which starred Ms. Gregorio, his only immediate survivor, and featured Mr. Duvall. “He was very cautious about working,” Mr. Duvall said, adding that he had asked Mr. Grosbard to direct several projects, including the film “Tender Mercies” and the television movie “Stalin,” and was turned down. “I wanted to work more with him. Whatever he brought to me, I did.” ... (New York Times)

Ben Gazzara, Actor of Stage and Screen, Dies at 81

Sun, Feb 5, 2012
It’s a thoughtful, intelligent interpretation of a role that just may not have as much depth to it as he’s ready to give it,” Vincent Canby of The New York Times wrote of Mr. Gazzara’s performance. In 1977, Mr. Gazzara had a supporting role behind Mr. Cassavetes and his wife, Gena Rowlands, in the backstage story “Opening Night,” with Mr. Cassavetes again directing. Speaking of Mr. Cassavetes recently, Mr. Gazzara said, “He set the climate for an actor to feel free to give whatever, and if it didn’t work, it didn’t work.” Mr. Cassavetes died in 1989. Two years after making “Opening Night,” Mr. Gazzara joined forces with another important director, Peter Bogdanovich, who gave him a rare leading role in “Saint Jack,” an adaptation of Paul Theroux’s novel about an American who operates a brothel in Singapore. He worked again for Mr. Bogdanovich in “They All Laughed” (1981), as a private detective who falls in love with the woman he is assigned to follow. The woman was played by Audrey Hepburn, with whom Mr. Gazzara had a brief romance after they met on the set of the 1979 film “Bloodline.” Mr. Gazzara worked with numerous other notable directors, among them Otto Preminger, whose courtroom drama “Anatomy of a Murder” (1959) featured Mr. Gazzara as a military man who is tried for killing his wife’s rapist and defended by James Stewart’s small-town lawyer. In David Mamet’s 1997 film, “The Spanish Prisoner,” he played the possibly duplicitous boss of an inventor who has come up with a valuable idea. Wearing a slick white suit, he was a producer of pornographic movies in the Coen brothers’ “Big Lebowski” in 1998. In Spike Lee’s “Summer of Sam” in 1999, he was a mobster. Beginning in the early 1980s Mr. Gazzara spent substantial stretches of time acting in movies in Italy, where he had a villa in Umbria. He appeared in Marco Ferreri’s 1981 adaptation of Charles Bukowski’s “Tales of Ordinary Madness”; “Il Camorrista” (1986), directed by Giuseppe Tornatore; and Stefano Mignucci’s “Bandits” (1995). “You go where they love you,” he said in a 1994 interview with Cigar Aficionado, explaining his work in Italy. Mr. Gazzara had parallel careers on the stage and in television. His first significant stage role was as a two-faced bully named Jocko in “End as a Man,” about life in a Southern military academy. Developed at the Actors Studio, it opened on Broadway in 1953. “Jocko is attractive, clever and alert on the surface, but evil at the core,” Brooks Atkinson wrote in The Times, “and Mr. Gazzara’s acting perfec...
