King Vidor, in full King Wallis Vidor, (born February 8, 1894, Galveston, Texas, U.S./died November 1, 1982, Paso Robles, California), American motion-picture director whose films of the 1920s and ’30s in both content and theme were among the most creative of those produced in Hollywood; they deal in relatively uncompromising terms with such themes as idealism and disillusionment in contemporary life. He was nominated for the Academy Awards for the film, The Crowd (1928), Hallelujah (1929), The champ (1931), The Citadel (1938) and “War and Peace” (1956) and received the Best Director Award for “The Wedding night” (1935) at Venice Film Festival.
