George Pal

George Pal was a Hungarian director, producer, and screenwriter who became a naturalized American citizen in 1940. He primarily worked in the genres of fantasy and science fiction. A specialist in stop-motion animation, he created the Pal-Doll in Germany, known as Puppetoons in the United States. These puppets had interchangeable parts that allowed for different phases of animation to be swapped in and out. These techniques were notably reused towards the end of the 20th century by Guionne Leroy. He received five Academy Awards in his career. With seven nominations, he is the second-most nominated Hungarian exile at the Academy Awards, after composer Miklós Rózsa.
