    This is without a doubt Orson Welles.  No film on this list comes close to its reputation, for being the film to singlehandedly bolster the director as artist “auteur” argument.  Truffaut also had an amazing debut film.  Quite a few of these films are more “theatrical”/of the theater than cinematic and feel like plays.

    From the list, I’m going to go with Orson Welles

    But the greatest pre-1970 directorial debut is undoubtebly Peter Bogdanovich and Targets
