AFI to honor Miller’s work

Classic Film series to screen 'Hunter', 'Graduate', 'McCabe'

The American Film Institute will honor director Robert Ellis Miller during its third annual Classic American Film series, to be held today at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences.

Miller’s award-winning 1968 film, “The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter” will be screened at the Academy along with “The Graduate” and “McCabe and Mrs. Miller.” All three pics have been designated for honors by the AFI.

“Hunter,” based on the Carson McCullers novel, earned actor and supporting actress Oscar nominations for Alan Arkin and Sondra Locke, respectively.

Miller’s other credits include “Reuben, Reuben,” “Any Wednesday,” “Sweet November” and “The Girl From Petrovka.” Miller is currently at work on “Swelter,” an indie pic scheduled for production this summer.
