Ridley Scott (*1937)

Ridley Scott on the set of Hannibal (2001)

Cult director Ridley Scott began his career as a commercial film director, shortly thereafter making his directorial debut for the TV series "Adam Adamant Lives!" in 1966. It took him 11 more years to deliver his first feature film, THE DUELLISTS, in which he showed off his blooming visual skill. His best films followed thereafter, ALIEN and BLADE RUNNER, both science-fiction films which were setting the trend for years to come and remain highly influential today. It is these films that his cult reputation rests upon. Other good films of his are LEGEND, THELMA & LOUISE, WHITE SQUALL and GLADIATOR. The filmography below omits his work for television.
