The Top Directors of H'wood

***Movie-lore: Popular Cinema & its Evolution.

One of the most important area in the making of a Movie-feature is that of Direction, although undoubtedly the end-product that we relish on the screen is a result of the toils & talent, put-in by the group of technicians, artists, stuntmen & the Producers. Yet as perceived of the contribution by me, the Dir can be seen as the 1st among equals in the vast Motion-Pic Industry or simply the helmsman of a ship. 
Therefore an array of Directors mostly from Hollywood is one topic that I intend to post in a series, the styles of the great Directors in the form of an Introduction & then to pick a great Director in a randomly selected order from my next posts.
Hollywood in particular has a list of Directors that kept churning out hits without the raw slap-stick humor, brazen themes, sleaze, & socially/historically off-tuned movies that is so much an integral part of the majority in today's Movie-World.
Here are a few of the most-prolific directorial-Moguls of the #1-medium of entertainment the world of Show-Biz i.e. Cinema.   

Norman Taurog
Frank Capra

John Ford
Victor Fleming

Frank Borzage



Michael Curtiz
John Huston

                     Alfred Hitchcock & Fred Zinneman
