GORDON, MICHAEL (1909–1993), U.S. director. Born in Baltimore, Gordon began directing feature films in 1942 and was highly successful critically and commercially with films such as The Web (1947); Another Part of the Forest (1948); An Act of Murder (1948); Woman in Hiding (1950); and his adaptation of Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac (1950). Gordon was blacklisted because of the House Un-American Activities Committee hearings. Away from Hollywood for a decade, he returned with an unrecognizable but successful style, directing slick, glossy films, such as I Can Get It for You Wholesale (1951); The Secret of Convict Lake (1951); Pillow Talk (1959); Portrait in Black (1960); Boy's Night Out (1962); For Love or Money (1963); Move Over, Darling (1963); A Very Special Favor (1965); Texas across the River (1966); The Impossible Years (1968); and How Do I Love Thee? (1970). He was also one of the directors of the television series Decoy (1957) and Anna and the King (1972).
