Anthony Harvey, Oscar-Nominated Director of 'The Lion in Winter,' Dies at 87

The Londoner also helmed 'Dutchman' and 'They Might Be Giants,' edited Kubrick films and enjoyed a "hysterical" moment at the 1969 Academy Awards.

Anthony Harvey, who received an Oscar nomination for directing The Lion in Winter, the 1968 historical drama that starred Katharine Hepburn, Peter O'Toole and, in his movie debut, Anthony Hopkins, has died. He was 87.

Harvey died on Thanksgiving Day at his Water Mill home in Southampton, New York, radio host and former actor Walker Vreeland confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter. The two had an engaging conversation in December 2014.

Before he was a director, Harvey was a film editor and collaborated with Stanley Kubrick on Lolita(1962) and Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964). The London native also cut the Cold War classic The Spy Who Came in From the Cold (1965), directed by Martin Ritt.
