Screenwriter

Balding Hollywood screenwriter with genial, lemon-shaped face, nominated for an Oscar for his work on the 1965 film The Collector. After an inauspicious start to his cinema career with The Butler's Night Off (1951), which provided an early film role for fellow Canadian William Shatner, Mann worked extensively on TV before returning to movies a more polished writer: Another Time, Another Place (1958), The Mouse That Roared (1959), The Mark (1961), Woman of Straw (1964), A High Wind in Jamaica (1965), The Strange Affair (1968), Russian Roulette (1975), Circle of Iron (1978), Meteor (1979), Eye of the Needle (1981), Firestarter (1984) and Hanna's War (1988), his last.
