Ross Hunter
Director, Lost Horizon (1972)
Only Ross Hunter would remake a 1937 movie into a 1932 one.
(Judith Crist)
The narrative has no energy, and the pauses for the pedagogic songs are so awkward that you feel the director's wheelchair needs oiling.
(Pauline Kael, New Yorker)
Not only Hunter's films are synthetic; so, too, are his name (really Martin Fuss), his hair, and, as far as I can glean from one conversation, his mind.
(John Simon, National Review)
