Biography

Canadian director Steven Hilliard Stern attended the Ryerson Institute of Technology and served in the Infantry before inaugurating his television career. Stern's first theatrical feature was the 1971 anti-establishment confection BS I Love You, which he wrote as well as directed. The bulk of Stern's output has been in the field of made-for-TV movies, both in the U.S. and Canada. Future media historians will want to sift through the works of Steven Hilliard Stern when chronicling the early careers of such stars as David Letterman (Fast Friends, 1979), Tom Hanks (Mazes and Monsters, 1982) and Alexandra Paul (Getting Physical, 1984). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
