Joshua Logan Facts
Directed 6 different performers in Oscar-nominated performances: Arthur O'Connell, Don Murray, Red Buttons, Marlon Brando, Miyoshi Umeki, Charles Boyer. Umeki and Buttons won for their supporting performances in Sayonara (1957).

Wrote in his autobiography that he was offered the chance to direct My Fair Lady (1964), but the offer was withdrawn when he suggested that some scenes be shot on location in London.

Directed José Ferrer in his first major role, the title role in Charley's Aunt. He was subsequently called on by Ferrer to act as a "play doctor" in his first production of Cyrano de Bergerac in 1946. Mel Ferrer was directing, but so openly despised the play that he had inserted several absurd bits of staging in order to downplay the more sentimental aspects. Logan removed all of these, and the result was Ferrer's best-known role.
