DGA bestows accolade on prexy Hiller

Directors Guild of America president Arthur Hiller will receive an Honorary Life Membership in the DGA at the guild’s 45th Awards banquet March 6 at the Beverly Hilton.

The Honorary Life Membership, whose past recipients include D.W. Griffith, Frank Capra, Louis B. Mayer, Walt Disney, George Sidney, Jack L. Warner, Darryl F. Zanuck and David Lean, is given from time to time “for recognition of outstanding creative achievement, or contribution to the Guild or the profession of directing.”

“It’s a little humbling when I look at all the others who have received it,” Hiller said yesterday. “It’s an honor, but a totally unexpected honor. It’s especially nice when your colleagues honor you.”

Hiller’s credits as a director include “The Americanization of Emily,””Plaza Suite,””Love Story,””The Out-of-Towners,””Silver Streak,””The Man in the Glass Booth,””The In-Laws” and “Outrageous Fortune.” His most recent film was “The Babe.”

Another of Hiller’s films, Orion’s “Married to It,” which was shelved after the firm’s bankruptcy, will be released March 26.
