Flowers left for George Stevens
One of the true giants of motion pictures. Your reputation would be secure as one of our most gifted directors had you made only two films, "A place in the Sun", and "Shane", two of the best ever put on celluloid. To my mind, you belong to a trio of directors who represented the very best that Hollywood ever produced. I believe that you and William Wyler, and Elia Kazan were the best who ever worked in the medium. Between you, you three produced at least a dozen classic films that are among the best ever made, and rank highest among my personal favorites. "Best Years of Our Lives", "A Place in the Sun", and "On the Waterfront." I began to take notice of your work in the late 1940's, and followed your career throughout. Those films touched me in places that nothing else ever has. They left an indelible mark on my mind, and character. And they resonate with me now. Well done. RIP
