Vincente Minnelli (1903-1986), born Lester Anthony Minnelli, was an Oscar-winning movie and stage director. Minnelli was a window dresser at Marshall Fields, a photographer's assistant and a costume designer for live shows at Chicago and New York movie houses before breaking into show business as a costume and set designer and stage manager. He broke into Broadway as costume designer for Earl Carroll's Vanites (1930-31) and went on to design costumes and sets for and stage a total of 12 Broadway musicals. Minnelli began in Hollywood as a choreographer in Artists and Models (1937), getting his directorial debut in the low-budget all-black musical Cabin in the Sky (1943). Minnelli brought new levels of sophistication to Hollywood musicals, with efforts like Meet Me in St. Louis (1944); An American in Paris (1951), and Gigi (1958), for which he earned a Best Director Oscar. He also directed comedies and dramas, like Father of the Bride (1950) and 1952's biting The Bad and the Beautiful. Kris Kristofferson (born 1936) a Rhodes scholar, Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter and actor first gained fame as a songwriter, penning such hits as "Me and Bobby McGee", "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down" (a No. 1 hit for Johnny Cash in 1970), "Help Me Make It Through the Night" and "For the Good Times". He would later be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song Score in 1984 for Songwriter, in which he co-starred with Willie Nelson. Kristofferson began his solo career in 1970 with the release of his debut album, Kristofferson, on which he sang his hits made popular by others; the album would be re-released in 1971 as Me and Bobby McGee, placing in the country Top 10 and the pop Top 100. In 1971, Kristofferson won his first Grammy Award (for Best Country Song) for "Help Me Make It Through the Night". He would win two additional Grammy Awards for Best Country Vocal Performance by a Duo of Group when he teamed up with his wife (1973-1980), singer Rita Coolidge, for "From the Bottle to the Bottom" (1973) and "Lover Please" (1974). Kristofferson would also find success in a group as part of the Highwaymen (Kristofferson, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson), who released three albums (1985, 1990, 1995). After making his film debut in The Last Movie in 1971, he was also frequently seen on the big screen, appearing in such films as Cisco Pike (1972), Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid (1973), Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974), A Star is Born (1976, Golden Globe for Best Actor), Semi-Tough (1977), Convoy (1978), Heaven's Gate (1980) and Where the Red Fern Grows (2003) as well as the three Blade films. He has also appeared in a long list of made-for-TV movies. Kristofferson was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2004. Bottom right corner removed .
