Academy Award winning cinematographer and director Guy Green died Thursday. The 91-year-old passed away from heart and kidney failure at his Beverley Hills home.

"He was a gentleman in every sense of the word," his wife of 57 years, Josephine Green said. "There's not many around anymore. He was a man of integrity. Complete integrity. I've never known him otherwise."

Green began his film career in his native England, and was a founding member of the British Society of Cinematographers. In 2004, he was named an officer of the Order of the British Empire for his lifetime of work in the British cinema.

Winner of the 1946 Academy for cinematography for David Lean's Great Expectations, Green left cinematography in 1955 and went on to direct more than two dozen films. Two of his best known directing efforts were the British films Sea of Sand (1958) and The Angry Silence (1960), both of which starred Richard Attenborough.

"Guy was a leading figure in cinema both in the U.K. and in the United States for over 40 years," Attenborough said. "I had the most profound respect for his remarkable talent."

Green was nominated for Golden Globes for writing and directing the 1965 film A Patch of Blue, which starred Sidney Poitier. A Patch of Blue was Green's proudest work because he not only directed but also wrote and co-produced the film, his wife said.
