Since nobody has said the obvious I have to point to Erich von Stroheim in Jean Renoir’s The Grand Illusion and Billy Wilder’s Sunset Boulevard.

I have never seen The Grand Illusion. It’s been on my list for years. Lol. But love Sunset Boulevard. Wasn’t Cecil B Demille in it as well?

Apparently Demille was in it. I just remember the famous line Gloria Swanson says. You should definitely check out The Grand Illusion. I really like that movie!

I was gonna say this, but then I saw he actually started his career as an actor and has more acting credits than directing ones, so I don't know if it really counts. Anyway, I really liked him in Five Graves to Cairo too, really good minor Wilder film.
