Mann first made his name as director of several films noir. Early films which made Mann a name in Hollywood include:

  • T-Men (1947)
  • Raw Deal (1948)
  • Border Incident (1949)
  • Side Street (1950)
  • However, Mann is probably best remembered today for his work in the Western genre—particularly for eight film collaborations with James Stewart:

  • Winchester '73 (1950)
  • Bend of the River (1952)
  • Thunder Bay (1953)
  • The Naked Spur (1953)
  • The Glenn Miller Story (1954)
  • The Far Country (1955)
  • The Man from Laramie (1955)
  • Strategic Air Command (1955)
  • Mann's other westerns include:

  • The Furies (1950), starring Barbara Stanwyck
  • Devil's Doorway (1950), starring Robert Taylor
  • The Last Frontier (1955), starring Victor Mature
  • The Tin Star (1957), starring Henry Fonda and Anthony Perkins
  • Man of the West (1958), starring Gary Cooper
  • In the 1960s, Mann put aside Westerns to concentrate on making two epics for producer Samuel Bronston:

  • El Cid (1961)
  • The Fall of the Roman Empire (1964)
  • He was also the original director of Spartacus (1960), but was fired early in production by producer-star Kirk Douglas and replaced with Stanley Kubrick, having shot a handful of scenes.
