Budd Schulberg

Screenwriter, novelist, and producer Budd Schulberg (1914-2009) died today at the age 95 in his New York home this afternoon. Mr. Schulberg’s most notable work was On The Waterfront, a film that won eight Academy Awards including Best Writing, Story and Screenplay. The Harder They Fall, directed by Mark Robson and starring Humphrey Bogart, was based on his novel of the same name and is considered a highlight of the film-noir genre.

We here at Geek on Film have a lot of fun and make plenty of jokes, but we are also serious when it comes to paying our respects to those that have greatly contributed to the world of cinema. Rest in peace, Mr. Schulberg.
