Motion Picture Director, Screenwriter, Producer. He will perhaps be best remembered for the successful cult film "Death Wish" (1974) which starred Charles Bronson. Born in London to Jewish parentage, his mother was from Poland, his father originated from Russia, Michael initially studied Law at Cambridge. A fascination for movies and television soon led him to gravitate in a new direction. He acquired experience within the industry as an assistant director on TV, prior to directing the short "The Square" (1957). His first critically acclaimed work was the Notting Hill-area based picture "West 11" (1963). During the remainder of the 1960s, Winner yielded such films as "You Must Be Joking!" (1965), "The Jokers" (1967) and "Hannibal Brooks" (1969). During the 1970s, he worked with such movie veterans as Marlon Brando "The Nightcomers" (1971), Burt Lancaster "Lawman" (1971) and a series of pictures with Charles Bronson, among them "The Mechanic" (1972), "The Stone Killer" and the "Death Wish" film series. Additionally, Winner went on to become a food critic. (bio by: C.S.)
