Did he ever win an Oscar !

He has two - The French Connection and Unforgiven.

Unforgiven . Great great movie

reply

Funny how his career started by appearing in a black and white comedy spoof about a monster, his creation, getting to know said creation, and lamenting its departure from his home saying, "Wait, where are you going? I was going to make expresso!"

This was just a cameo and he wasn't even credited at the time.

He had already established himself before this with The French Connection, The Poseidan Adventure, The Conversation... I even remember him from Marooned.

He retired without fanfare and turned to writing.

I admit to not really following his career closely. Thanks for filling me in.

Sad to hear how quiet the direction his life has taken, eerie since he's not even dead. Who knows, people seem to get more famous for what they do and love after they're gone. Maybe this is what he wants to do. Writing is wise choice for filling in the time after having such a busy life and workload. He should adjust better than most.
