Director Sidney Lumet Dead at 86
Film director Sidney Lumet has died at 86. He is probably best known as a film director, having directed films like Network, Dog Day Afternoon, and 12 Angry Men, as well as the film version of the musical The Wiz, but Lumet also did some theater, as well -- both as a performer and a director. He directed a Broadway production of Caligula in 1960 and Nowhere to go but Up in 1962.
