Andre De Toth died last Sunday. An obit in the New York Times gives an overview of his life and career. He is mostly known as a director of film noir and westerns as well as the 3-D film House of Wax (though he wore an eye patch and had no depth perception).
Fred Camper wrote about his career when a retrospective of eight of his films played in Chicago in 1997. In April, LA Weekly published a conversation with de Toth, Jules Dassin, and Budd Boetticher (who died almost a year ago).
The Times notes that he was married seven times (including to Veronica Lake) and had 19 children. He wrote about his life in Fragments: Portraits from the Inside, there is a book of interviews, De Toth on De Toth, and he is featured in Martin Scorsese's excellent documentary on American film.
Only one of his films seems to currently be available on DVD. Hopefully, that will change now (more are on VHS and might be available to rent).
