A founding figure of the British New-Wave, and if you have not seen his films with Malcolm McDowell, you gotta, here is Lindsay Anderson! (Think “If” in 1968, “O Lucky Man” in 1973 & “Britannia Hospital” in 1982 just to name some of his impressive works, although the quality of the last film has been the subject of many debates).
This photo of the director was taken in the 80s – a period when Anderson found it increasingly difficult to make films following the poor critical and commercial response to his 1982 film. Around that year, Anderson was offered the role of the Emperor in Return of the Jedi. Unknown photographer.
