After graduating from school in Providence, Rhode Island (Providence, Rhode Island), Robert went on to study economics at the University of Virginia (University of Virginia). In 1941 he left the university in order to work in the studio `RKO Radio Pictures`;from that moment he began his career in the movie business.
By Robert climbed the career ladder by leaps and bounds ; he quickly became an assistant director. He had the opportunity to work with such stars of the time, like Jean Renoir (Jean Renoir), Abraham Polonsky (Abraham Polonsky),Lucie Joseph (Joseph Losey) and Charlie Chaplin (Charlie Chaplin). In the 50s Aldrich directed television projects ; at the same time saw the light of his first film, `The Big Leaguer`. At that time, Robert was a rare instance of American auteur cinema ; its liberalhumanistic worldview he showed in films of different genre - which is considered now the classic film noir Kiss Me nasmert` ` (` Kiss Me Deadly`), the film adaptation of the play by Clifford Odets (Clifford Odets) of the Hollywood movie business ` Big nozh` and military drama ` Ataka` (` Attack`),tells of careerist attitudes in the US Army and their impact on the actual fighting. I must say that in the 50 Aldrich worked mainly on militants ; so they have been removed such popular pattern with Burt Lancaster (Burt Lancaster), as ` Apach` (` Apache`) and ` Faith Krus` (` Faith Krus`) .

Following came the picture ` Hush, hush ,Pretty Sharlotta` - a major role played in it, again, Bette Davis ; It was planned role for Crawford, but she eventually abandoned. In 1967, Aldrich took one of the most famous military dramas of all time - ` Dirty dyuzhina`. The success of her was so great that Robert was able to establish his own studio ; Unfortunately,long she survived - after a series of failures because of its some nontraditional projects Aldrich had to close it and return to a more understandable to the broad masses of spectator pictures. The director, however,He continued to push in all your creations all the same humanist ideology - it is visible in the ` longest yard` (` The Longest Yard`) 1974 and Reid Ulzany` ` (` Ulzana`s Raid`) 1972.
