Directors » Director
Back in the days when ships burned coal, John Moxey's family had a coal/steel business with depots all over the world; he was born in 1925 in Argentina, where his father was running one of the firm's stations. Moxey knew from childhood that he was cut out for a job in the picture business and, following his discharge from the service after World War II, the battle-fatigued veteran got his start in the editing room. His first directing job was for British TV, followed by low-budget features in England, UK and scores of TV assignments in the U.S. He began using his middle name (Llewellyn) at the suggestion of a numerologist.
