My favorite of his eclectic work remains 1975's criminally-underrated "Night Moves", with Gene Hackman.

For me, it was "The Miracle Worker," a film many mistakenly see as inspirational and sugary, but it can be a dark little flick here and there. Plus, Bancroft and Duke were perfect together, and deserved their Oscars.

A sad loss, I adore Bonnie and Clyde.

But do forget 1985's "Target", with Gene Hackman and Matt Dillon, which was really, really bad.
