by Catherine Krummey

I only included films he directed.

Missing from The Auteurs’ database: The National Parks: America’s Best Idea (2009; would go between Mark Twain and Lewis & Clark: The Journey of the Corps of Discovery), Lewis & Clark: The Journey of the Corps of Discovery (1997; between The National Parks: America’s Best Idea and Baseball), The Dust Bowl (2012; between The War and Prohibition) and Prohibition (2011; between The Dust Bowl and The Civil War).
