Just completed principal photography on independent feature, "Turn of Faith", starring Charles Durning, Mia Sara and Costas Mandylor.


Award-winning director Charles Jarrott, son of an actress, started work in the theater as an actor and then, like his contemporaries, Frankenheimer, Lumet and Dan Petrie, 'paid his dues' in directing live television. Creating a name for himself in Canadian and British television, he won the coveted BAFTA "Best Director" award and First Prize in the internationally famous Prix Italia. This brought him to the attention of one of Hollywood's most illustrious producers, Hal B. Wallis, who produced "Casablanca" and 'True Grit" among other film epics. Mr. Wallis invited him to direct Richard Burton in the feature film, "Anne of the Thousand Days.", co-starring Canada's Genevieve Bujold. This film received ten Academy Award nominations and garnered the Golden Globe "Best Director" award for Mr. Jarrott. Other features followed and included "Mary, Queen of Scots" with Vanessa Redgrave and Glenda Jackson; "The Other Side of Midnight," with Susan Sarandon, John Beck and Marie-France Pisier; Burt Bacharach's musical version of "Lost Horizon" with Peter Finch, Liv Ullman and Sir John Gielgud; and "The Dove", a story of Robin Lee Graham's solo voyage around the world on a 23 foot sail boat. One of Mr. Jarrott's favorite films was "The Amateur" starring John Savage and Marte Keller, a saga of CIA versus international terrorism. His range of subjects is very wide, ranging from historical drama, action adventure, Mob street stories, biographic drama, comedy, through to fantasy. His Xmas fantasy, "Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus", starring Charles Bronson, has become standard U.S. Christmas fare. Since becoming a permanent resident in the United States, Mr. Jarrott's many credits also include several mini-series including, "Poor Little Rich Girl"; "Till We Meet Again"; "The Night of the Fox"; and Jackie Collin's "Lady Boss." Following his independent blacknoir film, 'The Secret Life of Algernon", which he co-wrote, he made an abrupt turn in the summer of 2000 to direct a Mob versus Union independent feature, "Turn of Faith" in Ohio, starring Costas Mandylor, Mia Sara and Charles Durning, which opens in theaters this year. At the moment he is preparing an independent feature Christmas story for 2002. He is married to an American and, at present, resides in Los Angeles.
