Serving his apprenticeship as a script supervisor for Robert Wise, John Flynn graduated to the director's chair in 1968, when he helmed the bizarre Rod Steiger vehicle The Sergeant. Specializing in gutsy actioners, Flynn served as director for such titles as Rolling Thunder (1977), Defiance (1979), Lock-Up (1989) and Nails (1992). Occasionally, as in the case of The Outfit, he did double duty as director and screenwriter. One of John Flynn's least typical works was also one of his most successful: the 1980 made-for-TV feature Marilyn: The Untold Story.
