Paul Leder was a former actor and singer on Broadway (best known for
co-starring with Phil Silvers in the musical Top Banana).
After the revival of Gay Paree closed in 1969, he decided
to try filmmaking. Paul financed and helmed a low budget, controversial
pedophile thriller POOR
ALBERT AND LITTLE ANNIE that found success in the 1971 Drive-In
circuit. After that film he went to Korea for GREAT
COUNTERATTACK OF KING KONG. Another 20+ movies followed until
poor health forced his retirement in early 1996. Mr Leder died from
lung cancer in April of that year. His daughter, Mimi Leder, is a successful
television director having helmed many episodes of both Shameless
and Leftovers (which she also produced).
