From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Charles Brackett (November 26, 1892-March 9, 1969) was an accomplished movie screenwriter and movie producer.

Born in Saratoga Springs, New York, Brackett worked with Billy Wilder as his collaborator on thirteen movies, including the classic Sunset Boulevard (1950) and The Lost Weekend (writer and producer for both). Brackett, who once studied at Harvard University and was a drama critic for The New Yorker at one time, was president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences from 1949 through 1955. Brackett and Wilder were teamed together as writers early in their careers but never got along. However, when Wilder went on to direct movies he continued to collaborate with Brackett, despite the fact that their mutual animosity grew even greater. Brackett and Wilder shared an Oscar for Sunset Boulevard (movie) (1950). Brackett won his second screenplay Oscar for Titanic (1953).
