Background
Andrew Marton was a Hungarian-born director active in film from 1922 to 1977. Working in the silent era and into sound, on both American and European productions, his career spanned more than fifty years and took him to four continents. He worked for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in the 1940s and 1950s, and Columbia, Paramount, and Twentieth Century-Fox in the 1960s and 1970s. He is perhaps best known for directing the chariot sequence in BEN-HUR (1959).
