Biography

Actor and writer Bruce Malmuth got his filmmaking start making documentaries when he was in the service. When he came out of the Army, he found success as a director of TV commercials, several of which received Clio awards. His fiction directing debut came in 1975 with a segment in the anthology comedy film "Fore Play". After directing an episode of "ABC Afterschool Specials" in 1980, he was enlisted to take over from director Gary Nelson to direct his first feature, the 1981 action film "Nighthawks", which starred Sylvester Stallone as a tough New York cop battling a terrorist. His follow-up came in 1983 in the action-comedy "The Man Who Wasn't There", in which he also had an acting role. Along with that film, he has also had small roles in films like 1984's "The Karate Kid" and its sequel, 1987's "Happy New Year", and "Lean on Me" in 1989. In 1986, he returned to TV again, directing an episode of the remake of the classic science-fiction anthology series "The Twilight Zone". That same year he also worked on the mystery-thriller "Where Are the Children?". In 1990, he took on another action film, "Hard to Kill", this time starring Steven Seagal. In 1994, he directed, as well as co-wrote his last feature "Pentathlon", with Dolph Lundgren. Malmuth also worked on the documentaries "Baseballs or Switchblades?" and "A Boy's Dream", which received an Emmy Award.
