Plus Polanski's REPULSION, CUL-DE-SAC and MACBETH. He made STAR WARS hell for Lucas but as far as I am concerned it was worth it. It has the best cinematography of the bunch.

RIP sir!

You got that right. Beautifully filmed movie. The others in the series don't compare....

RIP, Mr. Taylor.

He actually was a true cinematographer in that he had a different 'style' for each film. Compare 'Star Wars' with 'A Hard Day's Night'.

We often hear about a cinematographer's signature 'style' but some of the best could of course, as they should indeed, change the style to realise the vision of each project individually.

Condolences to family & friends.

Gilbert Taylor photographed so much more than the popular films cited above.

Periodically, I'll post images from some of his other films which may not be as well known.

Starting off this little commemoration with the 1950 film SEVEN DAYS TO NOON.

Great film from the Boulting brothers which turns up on TCM now and again.

The Bedford Incident. The comedy of errors at the end is classic brilliance! An even bigger case of "How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb" than Dr Strangelove.

The ending to Ice Cold In Alex must've been the blueprint for Heineken commercials since. Pure genius.

Gilbert Taylor lensed the pilot episode of RANDALL AND HOPKIRK DECEASED ("My Late Lamented Friend And Partner").

While FSM fans of Roman Polanski have already mentioned above such outstanding items as REPULSION and CUL-DE-SAC, how many are aware of the 'unfinished' Polanski project called "A DAY AT THE BEACH"? (which Gilbert Taylor has also lensed)
