Bio:
Maibaum was an American screenwriter whose career can be said to have had two distinct "eras". In the 1930s-1950s, he wrote a number of screenplays for films starring Alan Ladd. In 1953, his final Ladd vehicle, The Red Beret, was made by Warwick Studios, a company part-owned by Albert Broccoli. He then began to write exclusively for Warwick for the rest of the 1950s. When Broccoli's partnership with Irving Allen dissolved, Maibaum was brought over to the new EON productions, where he stayed for the rest of his career. In all, he was responsible for co-writing all but three of the EON Bond films that were completed before his death. Of these, he was least involved in his last film, Licence to Kill, because of a Screenwriter's Guild strike that forced British co-writer, Michael G. Wilson, to take on most of the chores.

Date of Birth: 26 May 1909
Birthplace:
Date of death: 4 January 1991


Notes:
Of his pre-EON efforts, his most enduring might be the original Ransom!, which was well-received in both its original 1956 version, and in director Ron Howard's 1996 remake starring Mel Gibson. Additionally, he is responsible for the oldest surviving adaptation of The Great Gatsby.
