Motion Picture and Television Director. He is best known directing the feature film "Georgy Girl" (1966), for which he received a BAFTA Film Award nomination. Born to an Italian-American family, he attended Bishop's University in Quebec and upon graduation joined the Mountain Playhouse in Montreal. While there, he was mentored by Joy Thompson who was a significant figure in English-language theater. This would lead to his association with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, serving as an assistant to already established directors Norm Jewison and Ted Kotcheff. Narizzano's directing debut was the documentary "Approach to Theatre" (1956), for the National Film Board of Canada and followed this with his directing of American and British TV programs, which included episodes from the series "The DuPont Show of the Month", "ITV Television Playhouse" and "Zero One". His feature film initiation was with the Hammer Studio Production "Fanatic" (1965, also known as "Die! Die! My Darling!") and he would receive a BAFTA TV Award for an episode of the series "Court Martial". He garnered further nominations with episodes from the TV series "Country Matters" (1972) and "Staying On" (1981). Among his other motion picture credits are "Blue" (1968), "Loot" (1972) and "Bloodbath" (1979).
