Boorman enjoyed an archetypal English suburban boyhood in the 1940's and 1950's, attending Catholic school and finding his first employment running a dry-cleaning business. But his passion was for film, getting his big break during the 'goldrush' of British television in the 1960's. After directing several innovative documentaries for the BBC, he graduated to motion pictures, and eventually to his first masterpiece 'Point Blank', which inaugurated his profound friendship with Lee Marvin.
