Biography | show moreshow less
George Axelrod (1922-2003) was successful on Broadway before turning his stage hit The Seven Year Itch (1955) into a movie. He continued to write for both stage and screen, producing the Broadway hit Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? (1955-1956) and earning an Oscar nomination for his screen adaptation of Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961). More film successes followed, including The Manchurian Candidate (1962) and The Fourth Protocol (1987). During the late 1950s and early 1960s, Axelrod was one of the highest paid writers in Hollywood. Many years after he retired as a screenwriter, Axelrod makes his screen debut with his only acting credit: he had a small part in The Next Best Thing (2000), starring Madonna and Rupert Everett.
