    Noting that the director of this is Ted Kotcheff, a Canadian who’d made a name in British theatrical films and television.
    At this point he was apparently starting a transition to the USA, via his native Canada.
    Ted Kotcheff made a number of films on both sides of the pond before settling down in 1999 to become the showrunner of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, a post he held for the first ten seasons.
    During his tenure, the weekly script-breaking sessions were called “Uncle Ted’s Story Hour”.
    Kotcheff didn’t direct many episodes himself, but one of them ,”9-1-1″, won Mariska Hargitay her Emmy award.

    Just so you know …

    He may best know for his first Rambo film, “First Blood”.
