    Bob Fosse had a hell of a run with an Oscar (Cabaret), Emmy (Liza with a Z special) and Tony (Pippin) all in the same year and all for directing. He also picked up a Tony and an Emmy for choreography.

    That's what I was thinking about in posing the question. Some all-timers there.

    Coen Brothers for sure

    in fact, might have the best batting average in film direction

    The Coens are phenomenal in many ways - their writing, directing and editing really brings a fullness to their output. Shoot if your rep is so strong you can get Bill Murray to (mistakenly) agree to appear in a movie about Garfield the Cat - you've got something.

    Bill Murray Reveals Why He Agreed to do GARFIELD; Involves The Coen Brothers.

    PS - Next Up - Macbeth feat. Denzel and Frances McDormand.

    That's pretty good, but alternating good movie / bad movie is a commonplace even among great directors. Altman, for example. Peckinpah.

    I think Swingline was looking for a streak of great movies uninterrupted by the routine flops and misfires.
