Anthony Mann/Oregon filmmaker

December 9th, 2008 by Anne Richardson · No Comments · 1950's, Oregon filmmaker

Anthony Mann (born Emil Anton Bundsmann) came to Oregon in 1952 to make Bend Of The River, his third Western with Jimmy Stewart. The leading practitioner of Cowboy Noir, Mann made movie history by transforming Jimmy Stewart from a kindly, slightly asexual, leading man to a troubled, brooding, gunslinging neurotic.

Impact on his peers: The Searchers (1956) shows signs that John Ford liked Anthony Mann Westerns. Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window (1954) and Vertigo (1958) both build on the screen persona Stewart created with Mann.
