RIP Harry Stradling Jr.

Woodland Hills, Calif. — Harry Stradling Jr., the two-time Oscar-nominated cinematographer who shot such films as “Little Big Man,” “The Way We Were,” “1776” and “Rooster Cogburn,” died Oct. 17 at the Motion Picture Home here. He was 92.

MSTies will remember another memorable film he shot, the movie in episode 512- MITCHELL.

The Hollywood Reporter has the story.

Thanks to Tim for the heads up.

  1. Wow, a lot of talent went into making that turkey.

    I always try to watch 1776 on the Fourth of July. One of the first scenes is this amazing long take, of John Adams (William Daniels) coming down the stairs from a bell tower, entering Congress. No cuts, and when they had to move the camera over a bump on the floor, they covered this up by having Adams adjust his jacket.


  3. We also watch 1776 every Fourth (going on 30 years now) and the photography, for a stage play film, is amazing.

    This guy sure had an eye — not his fault that Joe Don was something he had to see.
