Joseph McGrath (film director)

Joseph McGrath (born 1930, Glasgow) is a Scottish film and television director and screenwriter. He studied at Glasgow School of Art in the late 1940s/early '50s where his energy and talent was much admired by his contemporaries.

Best known for Casino Royale (1967), a film on which numerous directors worked, and The Magic Christian (1969), McGrath frequently collaborated with Spike Milligan and Peter Sellers.[1][2]

In the 2004 film The Life and Death of Peter Sellers, Alan Williams played the unnamed director of Casino Royale (whom Sellers refers to as 'Joe').
