Rod Daniel

Director

Born - 4 August 1942, Nashville, Tennessee, USA
Died - 16 April 2016

Narrow-headed American director with fluffily thinning brown hair, born Rollin Daniel; his looks were as sour as Walter Matthau's but he was a whiz at creating popular comedy for a mass audience. Cutting his teeth on the TV comedy series WRKP in Cincinnati, of which he became director, he stayed in television until the 1980s before moving into films: Teen Wolf (1985), Like Father, Like Son (1987), K9 (1989), The Super (1991), Beethoven's 2nd (1993) and Home Alone 4: Taking Back the House (2002), his last, with much more TV in between. He died from cancer.
