Behind the Scenes: Cinematographer Jack Cardiff

Behind the Scenes Still: Cinematographer Jack Cardiff

Jack Cardiff’s career spanned eight decades and included everything from classics The Red Shoes (1948) and The African Queen (1951) to not-quite-classics Conan the Destroyer (1984) and Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985).

This still from the documentary Cameraman: The Life and Work of Jack Cardiff (2010) shows why operators weren’t all that eager to do handheld work in the 1930s.
