  • A brilliant student, Ben Roberts entered N.Y.U. at age 16, graduating three years later. By the time he was 22, Roberts was successfully running his own independent public-relations counseling firm and was contributing comedy material to several Broadway musicals. In 1941, he collaborated with another young writer, Ivan Goff, on the theatrical suspense thriller Portrait in Black. He briefly worked in films in the early '40s, returned to the stage for six years, then settled in Hollywood permanently in 1949. All of his subsequent film efforts, as both screenwriter and producer, were in collaboration with his old friend Ivan Goff. The pair contributed to the success of such varied projects as White Heat (1949), Captain Horatio Hornblower (1951), and Midnight Lace (1960); and in 1957, they shared an Academy Award nomination for their scriptwork on Man of a Thousand Faces (1957). In addition, Ben Roberts and Ivan Goff served as executive producers for the weekly TV series Mannix and Nero Wolfe.
