Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Award-winning screen and TV writer who began writing episodes for the popular 1960s TV series "Mr. Novak," "The Mod Squad," "Peyton Place" and "Fame Is the Name of the Game." Sobieski created independent and adventurous women in the made-for-TV movies "The Neon Ceiling" (1971), "Amelia Earhart" (1976), her adaptation of Marilyn French's best-selling feminist novel "The Women's Room" (1980), "A Place to Call Home" (1987) and "Sarah, Plain and Tall" (1991). Her television work ranged from the sentimental dramas "Sunshine" (1973) and "Sunshine Christmas" (1977) to the thrillers "Reflections of Murder" (1974) and "The Bourne Identity" (1988). Sobieski scripted her first feature, "Sunshine Part II" in 1975 and subsequently wrote "Casey's Shadow" (1978), "Honeysuckle Rose" (1980), John Huston's misbegotten film of the Broadway musical "Annie" (1982) and Tim Hunter's teen film "Sylvester" (1985). She received a posthumous Oscar nomination for adapting (with novelist Fannie Flagg) the strongly feminist "Fried Green Tomatoes" (1991), Flagg's moving novel about independent-spirited, convention-spurning women living in the South in the 1930s.
