Biography

An award-winning director whose roots date to the days of live TV, Paul Bogart went on to direct the bulk of the episodes of the CBS sitcom "All in the Family" as well as numerous TV dramas and several feature films. He has proven particularly adept at recreating stage productions for the small screen, and has been trusted by actors that the Actors Studio tagged him to direct an adaptation of "The Three Sisters" (1964) performed at the famed center of method acting. After World War II military service, Bogart began his show business career working as a puppeteer and actor with the Berkeley Marionettes. By 1950, he was a stage manager and associate director on live TV programs for NBC, and in 1952 went freelance, working as a director for many of the anthology shows of the period, including "The U.S. Steel Hour" and "Kraft Theatre."
