Ernest Lehman, Happy Birthday, 1915-2005

Happy Birthday to Writer Ernest Lehman: Executive Suite & Sabrina, 54; The King and I, 56; Sweet Smell of Success, 57; North by Northwest 59, From the Terrace, 60; West Side Story, 61; The Prize, 63; The Sound of Music, 65. A unique talent, and for me his best script was Sweet Smell of Success, in 1957, maybe the best gibe filled screenplay ever written. What a communicator Lehman was, and he was able to succeed in drama, romance and musicals, quite a difference in styles, without a hitch or hiccup.
