From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Paul Mazursky is an American actor and film director. He made his film debut in Stanley Kubrick's first feature, Fear and Desire. His first film as director was Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice. He also directed Alex in Wonderland, An Unmarried Woman, and Scenes From a Mall. Other films include Down and Out in Beverly Hills, adapted from a play by French playwright René Fauchois, Moon Over Parador (1988) and the Autobiographical Next Stop Greenwich Village. He has recently published his autobiography which recounts his experience in fimmaking and well-known screen personalities he has directed, such as Peter Sellers. His quirky and iconoclastic approach to film subject matter has usually resulted in either big hits or audacious flops.

Mazursky has appeared as himself in a number of documentaries on film, including A Decade Under The Influence, New York at the Movies, and Screenwriters: Words Into Image. In Moon Over Parador, when Judith Malina, cast as the dictator's mother, was unavailable, and with the Rio Opera House available for three days of shooting, Mazursky played her himself, in drag.
