Director Mike Nichols died Wednesday evening at 83. The Oscar (and Emmy and Tony and Grammy) -winning director was a true Hollywood legend, helming some of the greatest movies of all time. In case you haven’t seen them, make sure you put these five Nichols films on your list. We can’t think of any better way to celebrate his life’s work.
Nichols was a prolific stage director as well as a film director, and it definitely shows in his deft adaptations of plays for the screen. Nichols directed one of Elizabeth Taylor’s greatest performances in this adaptation of the Edward Albee play.
