James Sheldon, Pioneering Director Of THE TWILIGHT ZONE & Over 1,000 TV Episodes, Dies @ 95: A Personal Obituary Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-03-14 at 3.40.40 AMJames Sheldon: November 12, 1920—March 12, 2016 (Portrait by Matthew Rettenmund)

If you've watched any TV of the '40s, '50s, '60s, '70s or '80s, you've watched James Sheldon's work.

From the notes on Film Forum's An Evening with James Sheldon: TV Pioneer (held Monday, March 27, 2005):

James Sheldon may not be a household name, but it’s one that’s flashed across  BooksBeforeForgetyour TV screen thousands of times.

Coming from radio to the new medium in 1948, Sheldon directed CBS’s first sponsored television series (We, the
People), the beginning of a 40-year directing career that took him from pioneering live shows like Studio One and Mr. Peepers, to just about every hit series you ever watched, including The Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Gunsmoke, Perry Mason, My Three Sons, The Fugitive, Route 66, The Naked City (filmed on location in NYC), Batman, and The Man From U.N.C.L.E., right up through Knot’s Landing, Dukes of Hazzard, and M*A*S*H.

Tonight, accompanied by some evocative slides and clips, Sheldon will take us on a history of TV through his career, talking about some of the 1,000+ shows he directed and the many stars he worked with, including Bing Crosby, Tony Randall, Rock Hudson, Gloria Swanson, Barbara Stanwyck, and Boris Karloff—and Dustin Hoffman, Gene Hackman, Clint Eastwood, and James Dean at the very beginning of their careers

The veteran TV director, who died at 95 on March 12, got his start as a page at NBC during the days of radio. Working his way up through the ranks, he at one point found out a directorial gig was opening and went to RKO secretary Norma Anderson to find out how he could be considered. She told him she had a stack of other men vying for attention, but that one way for him to rise to the top of her pile was to go home with her that night. He did, and he was hired. (Anderson later became Mrs. Burt Lancaster, proving she had a shrewd eye for both talent and talent.)

This is me as I made the decision to book a trip to Maui.

I fly out today. Even if my flight vanishes (I suggested it, so there's no way it will happen), I have posted lots of stuff on Boy Culture to keep your brains and at least one of your hands busy until I return.

Feel free to share the HELL out of anything you like, which will help my traffic avoid cratering.

My Last Resort Comments (0)


When you're as body-conscious as I am (and at times, for no good reason), I almost think going to a clothing-optional resort would be a good idea just to shake it off. A friend recommended a nude beach in Hawaii (which is great, because if it becomes a disaster you're still in Hawaii!), but I like the looks of my new advertiser, INNdulge in Palm Springs, California.

Plus, I'm a sucker for a pun.

Have you ever gone to a clothing-optional resort of beach?
