Mark Rydell

The creative director of the Actor’s Studio, Rydell first worked with Jack Sheldon in the early 60’s while directing an episode of “I, Spy.” Jack calls Mark Rydell the “father of the Jack Sheldon Orchestra” because the band was created by Sheldon for Rydell’s film, “For the Boys” starring Bette Midler and James Caan.
