Biography

Born in France, Guy began his film career by assisting in French films in 1939. He then became an assistant director in the British film industry after World War Two, most notably for directors Carol Reed (Fallen Idol, The Third Man) and John Huston (The African Queen).

He began his directing career in the early '50s, under the auspices of Sir Alexander Korda, and progressed to work on films such as The Colditz Story and The Devil's Disciple. In 1964 Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman invited him to direct the third - and arguably the best - James Bond film Goldfinger. Guy returned seven years later and to direct Sean Connery's first comeback as 007, Diamonds are Forever; before guiding Roger Moore in Live and Let Die and The Man with the Golden Gun. He also made the more serious espionage thriller Funeral in Berlin, as well as actioners Battle of Britain, Force 10 from Navarone and whodunnits The Mirror Crack'd and Evil Under the Sun.

Despite his vast range of credits, he is most fondly remembered for his four 007 films and remains extremely proud of them.
