About Charles Jarrott

Charles Jarrott (16 June 1927 – 4 March 2011) was a British film and television director. He was best known for costume dramas he directed for producer Hal B. Wallis, among them Anne of the Thousand Days, which earned him a Golden Globe for Best Director in 1970.

Although Anne was nominated for several awards, critic Pauline Kael wrote in her book Reeling (Warner Books, p. 198), that as a director, Jarrott had no style or personality, and that he was just "a traffic manager." Nevertheless, his next film, Mary, Queen of Scots, was nominated for six Academy Awards and several Golden Globes.

Jarrott was the son of English racing car driver and businessman Charles Jarrott, and was married to Rosemary Palin (1949-1957), actress Katharine Blake and Suzanne Bledsoe (1882-2003)

Jarrott died on 4 March 2011 from prostate cancer.
