This chapter examines the role of film director/producer Norman Jewison in the career of Hal Ashby as a director. During Ashby's dark hours after he was fired from The Loved One, Jewison offered him to edit The Cincinnati Kid. For the rest of the 1960s, Jewison's presence in Ashby's life guaranteed him not only regular, secure work but also devoted friendship. Jewison became a mentor to Ashby, and working alongside him gave Ashby a master class in how to operate as a director, starting with the way he stamped his authority on The Cincinnati Kid.
