Lehman, Ernest
▪ 2006

      American screenwriter and film producer (b. Dec. 8, 1915, New York, N.Y.—d. July 2, 2005, Los Angeles, Calif.), wrote screenplays for some of the most enduring Hollywood films of the 1950s and '60s. Lehman enjoyed early success as a short-story and novella writer before turning to writing for the screen. He proved adept at an original screenplay, his Academy Award-nominated North by Northwest (1959), and adapted screenplays, notably his Oscar-nominated work for Sabrina (1954), West Side Story (1961), and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966). Other screenplays included Executive Suite (1954), Sweet Smell of Success (1957), and The Sound of Music (1965). In 2001 Lehman became the first screenwriter to receive a lifetime achievement award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
