Film director Mike Nichols might be best known for his work on 1967’s The Graduate (which won him a Best Director Oscar), but that cult film is only the beginning of Nichols’ achievements behind the camera. From timeless classics like Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? to new classics like Heartburn, Working Girl and The Birdcage, Nichols could do it all. He also excelled in the theater world, directing such famed Broadway productions as 1964’s Barefoot in the Park and more recently a revival of Death of a Salesman with Philip Seymour Hoffman in 2012 as well as on the small screen with the acclaimed HBO miniseries Angels in America. He will be greatly missed to all arenas of entertainment.
