Subject: Ken Annakin film director has died

Written By: Philip Eno on 04/24/09 at 3:06 am

Just heard on the raido that English film director Ken Annakin has died aged 94.

Ken Annakin, OBE (10 August 1914 – 22 April 2009) was an English film director. His career in films followed his work experience in documentaries. He made his directing debut in 1947 at the Rank Organisation, although the following year he moved to Gainsborough Pictures to direct three films about the Huggetts, a working class family living in suburban England. Annakin became known for a series of Walt Disney adventures including The Story of Robin Hood and His Merrie Men (1952), The Sword and the Rose (1953) and Swiss Family Robinson (1960).

He died on 22 April 2009, the same day as Jack Cardiff, who had been his cinematographer on the 1979 film The Fifth Musketeer.
