Being Hal Ashby

Nick Dawson

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter examines the developments in the professional career of Hal Ashby after his first Academy Award for film editing. When Ashby told Norman Jewison that he wanted to become a film director, the latter again offered him his help. To prepare Ashby for directing, Jewison kept him on as associate producer but reduced his editorial duties so he could be on set to watch and learn. These projects include Gaily, Gaily and The Confessions of Nat Turner. After these films, Jewison offered Ashby to direct The Landlord.

Keywords:   Hal Ashby, Norman Jewison, film director, associate producer, Gaily Gaily, The Confessions of Nat Turner, The Landlord
