After early work in the sound department and as an editor, British filmmaker Kevin Connor went on to become a prolific director of everything from Edgar Rice Burroughs adventures to Civil War-era miniseries. He first joined the ranks of the industry editing for both sound and picture, including the unusual musical, "Oh! What a Lovely War," directed by Richard Attenborough. A BAFTA nomination for his work on that film led to more opportunities, and he continued to edit even after he'd begun his directing career with the horror anthology "From Beyond the Grave." He next launched a trio of science fiction/fantasy films based on the writings of Edgar Rice Burroughs and featuring actor Doug McClure, the first being "The Land That Time Forgot." In 1980, he led the cult horror parody "Motel Hell," with a notable late-career appearance by Rory Calhoun. In the early '80s, Connor shifted into television, directing for such detective series as "Hart to Hart" and "Moonlighting" before taking on "North and South, Book II," the miniseries about families on opposing sides of the Civil War. He has helmed numerous biopics, including "Liz: The Elizabeth Taylor Story" and "Mother Theresa: In the Name of God's Poor," along with various other miniseries and TV movies, such as a string of "McBride" pictures, featuring John Larroquette as the defense attorney of the title.
