Lindsay-Hogg has also directed Athol Fugard's "Master Harold ... and the boys" and William Hoffman's AIDS drama "As Is" for American TV, the music documentaries "Simon and Garfunkel: The Concert in Central Park" (1981) and "Graceland: The African Concert" (1987) and the initial episodes of the highly-praised "Brideshead Revisited" (1984) for British TV.

Lindsay-Hogg followed with the offbeat caper film "The Object of Beauty" (1991) and "Frankie Starlight" (1995), the story of the trials and tribulations of a dwarf and his mother set in post-war Ireland.

Lindsay-Hogg, who has long fought rumors that he is the son of Orson Welles (to whom he bears a striking physical resemblance), is the son of actress Geraldine Fitzgerald.
