George Mashall's career spanned over 50 years, directing short films from 1916-1919, then to features in the 1920s, and even television in the 1960s. He directed films of many genres: biblical (The Story of Ruth, 1920), Westerns (Destry Rides Again and it's remake, Destry; How The West Was Won; Pillars in the Sky; The Sheepman), film Noir (The Blue Dahlia), comedies (The Ghost Breakers, with Bob Hope), and musicals (The Goldwyn Follies, 1938). He directed the railroad sequence in How the West Was Won, with the stampeding buffalo. His TV credits include Here's Lucy, Daniel Boone, Hec Ramsey, and The Odd Couple.

Also today:

Jon Voight (1938-) Started out in the early 1960s, appearing in 3 episodes of Gunsmoke, an episode of Cimarron Strip, and as Curly Bill Brocious in Hour of the Gun, before his big break in Midnight Cowboy, which earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Actor (losing to John Wayne for True Grit). He then went on to appear in Deliverance, The ODESSA File, Coming Home (winning the Best Actor Oscar for playing a paralyzed Vietnam veteran), and the 1979 remake of The Champ. He was the first choice to play Woodrow Call in Lonesome Dove, turning it down due to prior commitments, but he would play the role in sequel Return to Lonesome Dove. In the 1996 version of Mission:Impossible, he turned the character of Jim Phelps (played by Peter Graves in the TV series) into one of the villains, upsetting many of the series fans. He earned another Oscar nomination for his portayal of Howad Cosell in the film Ali.
