Robert Jonathon Demme (1944-2017). He was an American director, producer and screenwriter. He began his career in films working for producer Roger Corman, producing and co-writing the films Angels Hard as They Come (1971) and The Hot Box (1972). He began directing for Corman's New World Pictures creating three films for the studio Caged Heat (1974), Crazy Mama (1975) and Fighting Mad (1976). In 1977 Demme directed a comedy Handle with Care for Paramount pictures which was well reviewed but did poorly at box offices. Swing Shift was intended to be a commercial vehicle for Demme, starring Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn. However issues in production as well as differing visions between Demme and Hawn resulted in Demme renouncing the film and its 1984 release did little for the director's commercial profitability. Over the next few years he directed comedies before directing his cinematic masterpiece The Silence of the Lambs (1991). Starring Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins, the film is only one of three to ever win an Academy Award in all of the major categories (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actor, and Best Actress). His next feature film was the drama Philadelphia (1993) starring Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington which dealt with the topics of HIV/AIDS, homosexuality and homophobia. Some of his other films include The Truth About Charlie (2002), The Manchurian Candidate (2004) and Rachel Getting Married (2008). Fine condition.
