Producer Frank Marshall is turning 71 today. He got his start in the film industry through Peter Bodgdanovich; he met the director at a party and wound up as Bogdanovich’s assistant on Targets. He then worked with Bogdanovich on several subsequent films, taking on more responsibility each time until he was a credited producer on Nickelodeon. Marshall then worked with Martin Scorsese on The Last Waltz and with Walter Hill on The Driver and The Warriors. In 1981, he began his must durable association with a director, working on a film that became the first of five Best Picture nominees he would produce.
