Motion Picture Director. He will perhaps be best remembered for directing Clint Eastwood in the films "Hang 'Em High" (1968) and the second installment of the "Dirty Harry" series "Magnum Force" (1973). Born into a Jewish family, his interest in the movies was ignited while he worked in a theater as an usher in his native Brooklyn. Initially, he studied acting at the Moscow Art Theater but it would be in Long Island with a summer stock company, where Post began his lengthy association in the director's chair. Upon returning home from his service with the United States Army during World War II, he resumed his experience in theater and when the new medium of television was born, his career took off. During the 1950s, he directed episodes for such live programs as "The Ford Television Theatre" and by the conclusion of the decade, he was guiding a young Clint Eastwood during the run of the series "Rawhide". After furthering his resume with credits from such popular programs as "Combat!", "The Twilight Zone" and "Peyton Place", Post move into the feature film aspect with "Hang 'Em High". The movie launched Clint Eastwood's career as a leading man in American pictures. Post went onto have a memorable effort with the second installment of the "Planet of the Apes" series "Beneath the Planet of the Apes" (1970) and followed this with "Go Tell the Spartans" (1978) and the Chuck Norris vehicle "Good Guys Where Black" (1978). He remained active within the industry until the late 1990s. Post died at the age of 95 after a lengthy period of failing health. (bio by: C.S.)
