Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. George Tzavellas, also rendered Giorgos Tzavellas, Yiorgos Tzavellas, or Yorgos Javellas (1916-1976), was a Greek film director, screenwriter, and playwright. His filmmaking was particularly influential, with critic Georges Sadoul considering him "one of the three major postwar Greek directors" (along with Michael Cacoyannis and Nikos Koundouros). Tzavellas wrote at least 26 plays, in addition to writing the scripts for all of his films. Among his notable films are the comedy Marinos Kontaros (1948), the drama O Methystakas (1950), and a cinematic adaptation of the Sophocles play Antigone (1961).show more
