    Hard-working, dedicated, inventive, and ready to tackle any genre - that was Academy Award-winning director Robert Wise. Despite all the praise and awards, Wise could easily be called one of Hollywood's always working blue-collar directors. He helmed everything from B movies to Academy Award-winning blockbusters, all while managing to live a quiet life amid the glitz, glamour, and scandal of Tinsel Town. How this soft-spoken man managed to tame mega-stars' egos while directing film classics remains a mystery.
