While he was never considered an auteur at any point in his career, director Richard Fleischer still carved out a successful and respectable career in Hollywood. The son of Max Fleischer – one time rival to Walt Disney in the animation world – Richard found his own way, starting out working for RKO Radio Pictures in their B movie unit (which included the taut noirs Armored Car Robbery and The Narrow Margin) before graduating to the big time with the successful adaptation of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954) for Disney (quite ironic when you think about it, isn’t it?). He became a reliable gun for hire in the later part of his career, at one point having seen 16 of his films that he directed released into theaters from 1966 to 1977; coming in during this time was The Don is Dead, one of the first films to capitalize on the runaway success of The Godfather. Previously released on DVD by Universal, Kino has licensed the movie for its Blu-ray debut.
