finest films as producer and director:
Brand-New 35 mm. Print! RAGING BULL, 1980, MGM/UA, 128 min. Widely
regarded as one of the finest American movies of the past two decades,
director Martin Scorsese's masterpiece is a stunning b&w portrait of
prizefighter Jake La Motta (Robert DeNiro) and his harrowing, destructive
bouts in and out of the ring. Winner of Academy Awards for Best Actor
(DeNiro) and Editing (Thelma Schoonmaker). With Cathy Moriarty, Joe Pesci.
GUILTY BY SUSPICION, 1991, Warner Classics, 105 min. Written and
by Winkler, GUILTY BY SUSPICION is a gripping, beautifully-acted drama of
the 1950's Communist witch hunts in Hollywood, starring Robert DeNiro as a
successful director facing the blacklist and Annette Bening as his ex-wife.
With George Wendt, Patricia Wettig, Sam Wanamaker.
