    (October 22, 1943- )
    Born in Eindhoven, Netherlands
    Cinematographer for 'Turkish Delight' (1973), 'Cujo' (1983), 'All the Right Moves' (1983), 'Ruthless People' (1986), 'Leonard Part 6' (1987), 'Die Hard' (1988), 'The Hunt for Red October' (1990) and 'Basic Instinct' (1992)
    Directed 'Speed' (1994), 'Twister' (1996), 'Speed 2: Cruise Control' (1997), 'The Haunting' (1999) and 'Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life' (2003)
    He was nominated for Razzies as worst director for both 'Speed 2' and 'The Haunting.'
    He uses the epithet 'fucking hell shit' so often, the 'Twister' crew considered printing it on t-shirts.
    After Helen Hunt suffered a concussion filming 'Twister,' he said, 'I love Helen to death, but you know, she can be a little bit clumsy,' to which she responded, 'Clumsy? The guy burned my retinas, but I'm clumsy.'
    During the filming of 'Twister,' he threw a cameraman into a ditch, prompting a mass walkout by the crew.
    He was scalped by a lion on the set of the film 'Roar' (1981).
    He is a fan of Stanley Kubrick and frequently works references to the director into his films.
    His directing career got off to a great start, with two films that grossed over $300 million worldwide.
    He said, 'I don't think I'm a hothead, but I do believe you have to be passionate.'
