Joseph Losey

Losey, Joseph (lōˈzē) [key], 1909–84, American film director, b. La Crosse, Wis. Among his Hollywood works, many of which dealt with social issues, are The Boy With Green Hair (1948) and M (1951). Losey was blacklisted in Hollywood because of alleged Communist sympathies and left for England in 1952. In collaboration with writer Harold Pinter, he directed films about corruption and morality, including The Servant (1963), Accident (1967), and The Go-Between (1970). His other films include King and Country (1964), A Doll's House (1973), and Steaming (1985).
