LEE GRANT: Actor. Filmmaker.

(Nov. 17-Feb. 15) — A series of films staring or created by Lee Grant.

At 26, Grant (born Lyova Haskell Rosenthal) won Cannes’ Best Actress award and was Oscar-nominated; within the year, she was blacklisted for over a decade for refusing to testify against her husband at the House Un-American Activities Committee. Coming back strong, she won an Emmy for "Peyton Place," then appeared in a series of modern movie classics, winning an Oscar for her brilliant comic performance in "Shampoo." But a whole new career beckoned as the director of acclaimed documentaries (including an Oscar winner), warm portraits of friends (Michael and Kirk Douglas, Sidney Poitier, et al.) and cutting-edge films on women’s and gender issues.

Today: "In the Heat of the Night."
