Biography

After a decades' worth of experience in British television, director Jack Gold made his feature-film debut with the critically acclaimed The Bofors Gun (1968). Gold's later films have been a curious lot, none curiouser than the revisionist Robinson Crusoe flick Man Friday (1976). Occasionally returning to TV, Gold has directed such praiseworthy efforts as Catholics (1973), The Naked Civil Servant (1975) and the Ricky Schroder version of Little Lord Fauntleroy (1980). More recently, Jack Gold has busied himself with made-for-cable features along the lines of Sakharov (1989). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
