Michael Stringer, Film designer, in love with films as a teenager, Michael Stringer created a model for himself of his local cinema on which he would update the poster displays. He later became an RAF pilot in the Second World War and went on to design the hit war film 633 Squadron (1964) and more than 50 other motion pictures before retiring to Sussex to become a painter specializing in local scenes.
Stringer’s work as art director on Fiddler on the Roof (1971), involving much shooting in Yugoslavia, earned him an Academy Award nomination shared with the Hollywood production designer Robert Boyle and set decorator Peter Lamont, but they lost to Nicholas and Alexandra. His later assignments included The Greek Tycoon (1978), The Awakening (1980), The Mirror Crack’d (1980), and The Jigsaw Man (1983) before he moved into television with excellent sets for the Ian Richardson version of The Hound of the Baskervilles (1983).
John Michael Stringer, film production designer and art director, painter and illustrator: born Singapore 26 July 1924; twice married (two daughters); died Eastbourne, East Sussex 7 March 2004.
