I haven't seen everything those men had directed, and a couple of them I've never heard of or knew they directed a movie I saw and liked.  So.....

Pass.

I love how the directors included are not the most famous/usual suspects.

1. Henry Hathaway...so many great films. But I have to go with RAWHIDE (1951). I think it's a perfectly made western; all the roles are cast just right and they are all nudged towards greatness.

2. George Seaton...THE COUNTERFEIT TRAITOR (1962)

3. Delbert Mann...ABOUT MRS. LESLIE (1954)

4. Frank Perry...LADYBUG LADYBUG (1963)...it's brilliant from start to finish.

5. Guy Hamilton...EVIL UNDER THE SUN (1982)

6. Ingmar Bergman...THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY (1961)

7. Tim Burton...BEETLEJUICE (1988)

8. Robert Altman...PRET-A-PORTER (1994) is a personal fave though I know he did better work.

9. Vincente Minnelli...THE CLOCK (1945)

10. Sam Peckinpah...THE GETAWAY (1972) with RIDE THE HIGH COUNTRY (1962) a close second.

I'll admit that I had to look some of these men's filmographies up because I didn't know what they'd directed.

1. Henry Hathaway- The Dark Corner (1946)

2. George Seaton- Apartment for Peggy (1948)

3. Delbert Mann- Lover Come Back (1961)

4. Frank Perry- The Swimmer (1968)

5. Guy Hamilton- I haven't seen any of his films

6. Ingmar Bergman- I've only seen The Seventh Seal, and I don't want to watch it again, so I wouldn't call it a favorite.

7. Tim Burton- Big Fish (2003)

8. Robert Altman- I haven't seen any of his films

9. Vincente Minnelli- Meet Me in St. Louis (1944)

10. Sam Peckinpah- I haven't seen any of his films

Of all these directors, Tim Burton has probably had the most movies that I think of fondly. BIG FISH was also a wonderful movie.  It really resonated with me. Of all his films, BEETLEJUICE was probably the only one that I didn't get into.  ED WOOD, MARS ATTACKS, BIG EYES, BATMAN and BATMAN RETURNS are on the list. I liked all of them. I haven't seen DUMBO yet but bet I would.

He was never gone.   Like a lot of others in real life,  he just dropped out of politics.      🙂

Oh is that what happened? :)

I don't often think of directors with movies I enjoy.  I particularly can't argue with KISS OF DEATH.  That film is superior.  And I love Hathaway's TRUE GRIT, but Kiss is better.  

If ED WOOD isn't TIM BURTON's best, it's EDWARD SCISSORHANDS.  

I would differ on your list only with :

Vincente Minnelli - MADAME BOVARY (1949)

Sam Peckinpah - THE WILD BUNCH (1969)

Robert Altman - A WEDDING (1978)

Ingmar Bergman - WILD STRAWBERRIES (1957)  I have to admit if I had a 2nd choice, it would be FANNY AND ALEXANDER

Det. Jim, thank you for this intriguing thread. Like TopBilled, I'm glad you didn't pick just the usual suspects. For several directors, you've sent me to imdb to review their list of credits, and that's great. Several of you have mentioned films I haven't seen or don't recall well. These are the films I would be the most eager to see again from these directors:

1. Henry Hathaway - Johnny Apollo

2. George Seaton - 36 Hours

3. Delbert Mann - About Mrs. Leslie

4. Frank Perry - Diary of a Mad Housewife

5. Guy Hamilton - Death on the Nile

6. Ingmar Bergman - Sawdust and Tinsel (aka The Naked Night)

7. Tim Burton - Big Fish

8. Robert Altman - Nashville

9. Vincente Minnelli - The Band Wagon

10. Sam Peckinpah - Ride the High Country

Not that I've seen that many, but:

2.  Miracle on 34th St.

5.  I was that close to saying Goldfinger, but someone had to mention Evil Under the Sun

6.  The Magic Flute (the cutest Bergman ever made  ☺️)

7.  Pee-Wee's Big Adventure (the last true Tim Burton film before he sold out, or came Out)

8.  Popeye is the only one I've been able to stand

9.  The Band Wagon

10.  Salad Days  😆 ...No, just kidding, I don't like any of them, but his Julian Lennon MTV videos were good.
