This morning I stumbled across a message board thread on Mubi featuring pictures of great directors hanging out together. A few of you may have already seen a lot of these photos, but some of them were new to me so I thought I'd post them. They're really cool.

Probably my favorite one:

(Seated from L-R: Jean Renoir, Henri-Georges Clouzot, and André Malraux. Standing from L-R: Jacques Tati, Jacques Becker, Robert Bresson, G. Masso, Alexandre Astruc, and Noël-Noë).

The American version:

(From L-R: Howard, Spielberg, Scorsese, De Palma, Lucas, Zemeckis, Coppola)

New Wave:

(L-R: Claude Lelouch, Jean-Luc Godard, Francois Truffaut, Louis Malle, Roman Polanski)


(Standing from L-R: Robert Mulligan, William Wyler, George Cukor, Robert Wise, Jean-Claude Carriere, Serge Silverman. Seated from L-R: Billy Wilder, George Stevens, Luis Buñuel, Alfred Hitchcock, Rouben Mamoulian).

German royalty:

(From L-R: Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Werner Herzog, Wim Wenders).

American royalty:

(John Ford and Howard Hawks [and Michele Carey]).


(Tarkovsky and Antonioni)

(Kurosawa and Tarkovsky)

And, of course, a classic:

(Tarkovsky and Bresson)

I know John has posted some great pics like these on facebook. Are there any others out there we're missing?
