Legendary Lee Strasberg remains one of the most influential, controversial and misunderstood figure in the history of American theatre. An actor and director of considerable skill and accomplishment, he made his lasting mark as a master acting teacher, avatar of "the method, " that distinctively American adaption of Kinstantin Stanislavski's codification of acting techniques. From his base at New York's Actors Studio, Strasberg trained several generations of theatre and film's most illustrious talents, including Anne Bancroft, Julie Harris, Dustin Hoffman, Marilyn Monroe, Patricia Neal, James Dean, Sally Field, Jane Fonda, Paul Newman, Geraldine Page, Al Pacino, Steve McQueen, Franchot Tone and Gene Wilder.
