John Nicholas Cassavetes (December 9, 1929 – February 3, 1989) was a Greek-American actor, film director, and screenwriter. Cassavetes was a pioneer of American independent film, writing and directing over a dozen movies, which he partially self-financed, and pioneered the use of improvisation and a realistic cinéma vérité style.

 CLUE#1 THE CRAZY HORSE WEST

The name of the Californian strip-joint nightclub in Los Angeles from his film The Killing of a Chinese bookie.

CLUE#2 GLORIA SWENSON

His film Gloria was the third and final film he directed to receive an Academy Award nomination, which was for his wife Gena Rowlands for the Best Actress in a Leading Role Oscar. The title character's name of Gloria Swenson (Gena Rowlands) is almost identical to the name of American Golden Age of Hollywood actress Gloria Swanson. Gena Rowlands' mob-mom character was a performance and characterization in the style and tradition of old Warner Brothers gangster movies and melodramas from the Golden Age of Hollywood.

CLUE#3 SHADOWS

His first feature film. The film was shocking to American audiences in the late 1950s and early 1960s because it turned the "concept of race upside down". Film scholars consider Shadows a milestone of American independent cinema. In 1960, the film won the Critics Award at the Venice Film Festival.
