Director Arthur Penn dies at age 88

The Outsider : Arthur Penn's decades-long struggle against the Hollywood machine
by Michael Chaiken and Paul Cronin  posted June 4, 2008


In his 50 years within the American film industry, Arthur Penn's changing fortunes have rivaled those of the greatest characters in his own films.

Born in Philadelphia in 1922, Penn grew up during the Depression, spending his childhood divided between the city of his birth and, after his parents' divorce in 1925, New York. The dislocation of Penn's home life, coupled with the stigma of being a child of divorce, would have a profound and lasting effect on his psychological and emotional development. Moving among comedy, tragedy, realism, and absurdity (sometimes within the same story), his films address the traumas of childhood and adolescence through characters whose lack of self-evident identity is circumscribed by the impersonal social forces governing their lives.(read more here)

Penn, Arthur Hiller, 1922-, American director, brother of Irving Penn, b. Philadelphia; studied Black Mountain College and the Actors' Studio, Los Angeles. Penn, who often deals with themes of alienation in American life, began directing for television during the late 1940s. His Broadway credits include Two for the Seesaw (1958), The Miracle Worker (1959, Tony Award; film, 1962), and Toys in the Attic (1960). His first film, The Left-Handed Gun (1958), a psychologically probing study of Billy the Kid, was also an adaptation of a television drama. Penn's masterpiece, Bonnie and Clyde (1967), is a darkly brilliant study of the Depression-era outlaws that combines high drama with comedy, social comment, and extreme violence. Displaying an offbeat take on several screen genres, his other movies include Micky One (1965), Alice's Restaurant (1969), Little Big Man (1960), Night Moves (1975), and The Missouri Breaks (1976). Among his later, less commercially successful films are Four Friends (1981), Dead of Winter (1987), and Inside (1996).

Night Moves : A 1975 film starring Gene Hackman as Harry Moseby, a private eye that gets in way over his head. A great movie directed by the very talented Arthur Penn (Bonnie and Clyde). Hackman turns in another awesome performance. If you love movies, this is one you shouldn't miss.
Arthur Penn from A Personal Journey with Martin Scorsese through American Movies

Bonnie Parker is bored with life and wants a change. She gets her chance when she meets a charming young drifter by the name of Clyde Barrow. Clyde has dreams of a life of crime that will free him from the hardships of the Depression. The two fall in love and begin a crime spree that extends from Oklahoma to Texas. They rob small banks with skill and panache, soon becoming minor celebrities known across the country. People are proud to have been held up by Bonnie and Clyde; to their victims, the duo is doing what nobody else has the guts to do. To the law, the two are evil bank robbers who deserve to be gunned down where they stand. Written by filmfactsman (IMDb.com)

Arthur A. Penn (not to be confused with Arthur Hiller Penn )wrote both the words and music to "Smilin' Through" in 1919--he was inspired by a Broadway play of the same title which captured the heady, Wilsonian optimism following the First World War.
Many artists recorded the song in following years, but perhaps none resonated so well with her times and audience than did Britain's Vera Lynn, joined by Jay Wilbur and his Serenaders in this Second World War performance.

SMILIN' THROUGH
There's a little brown road windin' over the hill
To a little white cot by the sea
There's a little green gate
At whose trellis I wait
While two eyes o' blue
Come smilin' through at me

There's a gray lock or two in the brown of the hair
There's some silver in mine too, I see
But in all the long years
When the clouds brought their tears
Those two eyes o' blue
Kept smilin' through at me

And if ever I'm left in this world all alone
I shall wait for my call patiently
For if Heaven be kind
I shall wait there to find
Those two eyes o' blue
Come smilin' through at me...

So Long ,
never be forgotten
