Biography

American director and producer Daniel Petrie first entered show business as an actor. He went on to direct productions on stage, screen, and television. In film, he scored a critical success with the screen adaptation A Raisin in the Sun (1961). Unfortunately, the rest of his films have been decidedly mediocre.
