American film critic

Bosley Crowther (July 13, 1905 – March 7, 1981) was an American journalist and author. He was a movie critic for The New York Times for 27 years. His reviews and articles helped shape the careers of actors, directors and screenwriters, though his reviews, at times, were thought of as unnecessarily mean.
