Vincent Sherman Facts
During the early 1950s, his thriving career foundered as he was dropped without explanation by Warner Bros., after a federal agent had told the studio Sherman was suspected of communist ties. He said he wasn't a communist, but he knew people like John Garfield who'd been blacklisted, and he stood beside them. His film career was seriously damaged by Hollywood's communist "red scare," but he later rebounded as a successful director of such television series as "77 Sunset Strip" (1958), "The Waltons" (1972)_ "Doctors' Hospital" (1975), "Baretta" (1975), and "Trapper John, M.D." (1979).

Directed 4 actors to Oscar nominations: Bette Davis (Best Actress, Mr. Skeffington (1944)), Claude Rains (Best Supporting Actor, Mr. Skeffington (1944)), Richard Todd (Best Actor, The Hasty Heart (1949)), and Robert Vaughn (Best Supporting Actor, The Young Philadelphians (1959)).

Romanced many of his famous actresses, and he wrote about them in his 1996 autobiography, "Studio Affairs." Though both were married at the time, he and Bette Davis had an affair that began during the filming of Old Acquaintance (1943) and continued through Mr. Skeffington (1944) which was released the following year. His dalliance with Joan Crawford lasted through three movies, and another with Rita Hayworth happened during Affair in Trinidad (1952) after she had divorced Prince Aly Khan.
