Biography

George Pollock (March 27, 1907 – December 22, 1979) was a British film director, best known for bringing Agatha Christie's famous detective Miss Marple to the big screen for the first time, starring Margaret Rutherford.

Life and work

Born in Leicester, England in 1907, Pollock began his career as an assistant director in the mid 30s. He collaborated with David Lean on such films as Brief Encounter, Great Expectations and Oliver Twist. His first film as director was Stranger in Town in 1957. However, he is most famous for bringing Miss Marple to the big screen for the first time in 1961 with Murder She Said. He directed three more Miss Marple adaptations, each well received: Murder at the Gallop, Murder Most Foul and Murder Ahoy (which was based on an original screenplay). He also directed a 1965 adaptation of Christie's Ten Little Indians.

As well as film, Pollock directed episodes of the TV programmes Interpol Calling, Zero One, Gideon's Way and Danger Man.

He died in 1979.
