The Info List - Freddie Young





Frederick A. Young, OBE, BSC (9 October 1902 – 1 December 1998), (often credited as F.A. Young) was one of Britain's most distinguished and influential cinematographers. He is probably best known for his work on David Lean's films Lawrence of Arabia (1962), Doctor Zhivago (1965) and Ryan's Daughter
Ryan's Daughter
(1970), all three of which won him Academy Awards for Best Cinematography. He was also director of photography on more than 130 films, including many other notable productions, such as Goodbye, Mr Chips (1939), 49th Parallel (1941), Lust for Life (1956), The Inn of the Sixth Happiness (1958), Lord Jim (1965), Battle of Britain (1969), Nicholas and Alexandra (1971), and the James Bond
James Bond
film You Only Live Twice (1967). He was also the first British cinematographer to film in CinemaScope. Young co-wrote The Work of the Motion Picture Cameraman, with Paul Petzold, published in 1972 (Focal Press, London). In 2003, a survey conducted by the International Cinematographers Guild placed Young among the ten most influential cinematographers in history.[1] He was awarded The Royal Photographic Society's Centenary Medal and Honorary Fellowship (HonFRPS) in recognition of a sustained, significant contribution to the art of photography in 1996/97.[2] In 1984, Young directed his only film as at the age of 82, Arthur's Hallowed Ground, starring Jimmy Jewel, which was made for television.
