New York Times film critic Manohla Dargis has called Frank “one of the most important and influential American independent filmmakers of the last half-century.” Best known for his photographs, Frank gained worldwide attention in the 1950s with his book The Americans. He turned to filmmaking in 1959 when he codirected the experimental Pull My Daisy with Alfred Leslie.
