Frank Capra

Frank Russell Capra (May 18, 1897 – September 3, 1991) was an Italian-born American film director, producer and writer who worked his way from Los Angeles's Italian ghetto to become the creative force behind some of the major award-winning films of the 1930s and 1940s. His rags-to-riches story has led film historians such as Ian Freer to consider him the "American dream personified."Capra became one of America's most influential directors during the 1930s, winning three Oscars as Best Director.
