Joshua Logan

Joshua Logan started directing plays while he was still at Princeton and among the first actors he directed were Henry Fonda and James Stewart. His graduation from Princeton was delayed to accompany a classmate to Russia to study with Konstantin Stanislavski, inventor of “method acting”. Stanislavsko told him, “To be truly creative you must find your own way, you must not follow some old Stanislavski method”. Stanislavski emphasized the importance of the writer and Logan was proudest of the plays and films that he wrote as well as directed. His second wife was the widow of actor Walter Connolly who was 9 years his senior. He published his autobiography in 1976 and died in 1988.
