STUART BAIRD (director) marks his second assignment in the director's chair following Warner Bros.' 1996 action hit, "Executive Decision."

Following graduation from London's University College, with degrees in economics and international relations, Baird found his first industry job as a personal assistant to director Lindsay Anderson during the production of "If..."

He next worked under the tutelage of renowned director Ken Russell on his Oscar­winning "Women in Love," subsequently becoming a film editor five years later on Russell's rock opera, "Tommy." In between, he worked as an assistant editor, music editor and sound editor on such Russell works as "The Music Lovers," "Savage Messiah," "The Boyfriend" and "The Devils." He continued this association with Russell, "Altered States" being their last collaboration.

He earned his first Oscar nomination for editing the 1978 blockbuster "Superman," and continued building a respected reputation on such projects as Fred Zinnemann's "Five Days One Summer," Peter Hyams' "Outland" and Michael Apted's "Gorillas in the Mist," which won him another Oscar nomination. His ongoing collaboration with director Richard Donner includes editorial chores on "The Omen," "Ladyhawke," "Lethal Weapon" and "Lethal Weapon 2," "Radio Flyer" and "Maverick." He has also worked with producer Joel Silver on "Die Hard 2: Die Harder," "Demolition Man" and "The Last Boy Scout."

Between 1990 and 1992, Baird was a full­time staff editor at Warner Bros., where he oversaw editing on "Tango & Cash," "New Jack City" and "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves," among other pictures.
