Biography

Eminent and prolific cinematographer who created the appropriately harsh look of Erich von Stroheim's realist masterpiece "Greed" (1925). Daniels became known as Greta Garbo's preferred cameraman in the 1930s, shooting 20 of her Hollywood pictures. (He allegedly earned the distinction as much for his personal tact as for his technical prowess.) In the 1950s and 60s Daniels worked frequently, and successfully, with director Anthony Mann and actor Frank Sinatra. Brother of theater and TV director Jack Daniels.
