Ron Howard has been in Hollywood throughout his life.

He began his career in the role of Opie from "The Andy Griffith Show,"

he transformed into Richie Cunningham on "Happy Days,"

In which the show gained a lot of attention even though his role was a bit less prominent than The Fonz.

After that, adulthood arrived and he shifted from acting to direct.

He's been a most successful director thus far!

Howard is known as a professional with a high standard however,

that could be a negative compliment from those who believe his style

a bit lacking the sense of adventure and ambition that characterize his style.

If you're not a huge fan, we've opted to rank all the films Howard has directed during his long and illustrious career.
