Screenwriter of THE KNACK… AND HOW TO GET IT, HELP!, HOW I WON THE WAR, THE LONG DAY’S DYING, PETULIA (uncredited), THE CHARGE OF THE LIGHT BRIGADE, CUBA, AN AWFULLY BIG ADVENTURE, IRIS, THE OTHER MAN. Also uncredited: the English-language dub of FELLINI SATYRICON.

I was in touch with him a few times through his talented daughter Kate, and he was always very forthcoming and helpful. And what an amazing wordsmith.
