Directors on the Sets of My Favourite Films

I was bored, so I thought I'd whip up a quick pictorial post. I abandoned the task of maintaining a definitive 'top 10 favourite films' list a while ago. With the amount of movies I watch, it's hard to narrow down my favourites, let alone order them. So here are some pictures from the sets of 20 of my absolute favourite films, in no particular order. Every picture contains the director of that film, with at least one actor in the frame, too.

Sam Mendes with Annette Bening and Kevin Spacey on the set of American Beauty (1999)

Stanley Kubrick posing with daughter Vivian, with Jack Nicholson in front (The Shining, 1980) 
Alfred Hitchcock with James Stewart on the set of Rear Window (1954)
