Biography

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and screenwriter Sidney Howard worked in Hollywood writing alone or with others during the '20s and '30s. His popular play They Knew What They Wanted was filmed three times in 1928, 1930, and 1940 and later was adapted into the Broadway musical The Most Happy Fella'. Several other of Howard's plays have also been adapted for films. Among his most distinguished screenplays are Dodsworth (1936) and Gone with the Wind (1939), for which he was the principal and only billed writer. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
