4 Shots From 4 Films: Special John Llewellyn Moxey Edition


4 Shots From 4 Films is just what it says it is, 4 shots from 4 of our favorite films. As opposed to the reviews and recaps that we usually post, 4 Shots From 4 Films lets the visuals do the talking!

John Llewellyn Moxey was one of the best directors that most people have probably never heard of.  Born in Argentina and raised in the UK, John Llewellyn Moxey made his directorial debut with the classic horror film, City of the Dead.  Though he directed a handful of other feature films, Moxey is best known for being one of the best television directors of the 70s and 80s.  Along with directing episodic television, Moxey was responsible for directing several classic made-for-television films.  Moxey proved himself to be a master of every genre but, because he worked in television, his talent was often taken for granted.

When Moxey died last year at the age of 94, his work was in the process of being rediscoverd and reevaluated.  Today would have been Moxey’s 95th birthday and, in honor of the man and his career, here are 4 shots from 4 of his best.
