Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A prolific, British-educated writer, American-born Frederic Raphael had published seven novels, beginning with "Obligato" (1956), before making his first significant contribution to 1960s English cinema with the overlooked comedy, "Nothing But the Best" (1964), a biting look at a social climbing playboy (Alan Bates) who commits murder to get ahead in the world. He subsequently wrote original screenplays for John Schlesinger's character study "Darling" (1965), for which he won an Oscar, and Stanley Donen's "Two for the Road" (1967) and has adapted to the screen the works of writers like Thomas Hardy ("Far From the Madding Crowd" 1967, his second pairing with Schlesinger), Iris Murdoch ("A Severed Head" 1972) and Henry James ("Daisy Miller" 1974), not to mention his own novel, "Richard's Things" (1980).Raphael is also an acclaimed TV writer whose work for the small screen in the early 60s included "The Executioners" for ATV's "Drama '61." After concentrating on feature films for more than a decade, he returned to TV with a bang in 1976, writing the excellent "Rogue Male," which reteamed him with Donen, and creating the award-winning series, "The Glittering Prizes" (BBC), adapted from his novel.

Raphael is also an acclaimed TV writer whose work for the small screen in the early 60s included "The Executioners" for ATV's "Drama '61." After concentrating on feature films for more than a decade, he returned to TV with a bang in 1976, writing the excellent "Rogue Male," which reteamed him with Donen, and creating the award-winning series, "The Glittering Prizes" (BBC), adapted from his novel. Raphael wrote and directed "Something's Wrong" (BBC, 1978) and also directed both an episode of "Oxbridge Blues" (1984), a series of seven plays based on his short stories, and "The Man in the Brooks Brothers Suit" segment of the 1990 HBO anthology "Women & Men: Stories of Seduction." He created a third series for TV, "After the War" (1990), which aired on PBS' "Masterpiece Theatre," and, more recently, collaborated with Stanley Kubrick on the highly-anticipated "Eyes Wide Shut" (1999), adapted from a novella by Arthur Schnitzler.
