Highest Rated: 88% Winter Kills (1979)

Lowest Rated: 80% The Manchurian Candidate (2004)

Birthday: Mar 18, 1915

Birthplace: New York, New York, USA

A highly-regarded American author whose 1959 political thriller novel "The Manchurian Candidate" was turned into the classic 1962 feature film bearing the same name, Richard Condon only worked on one produced screenplay, co-writing (with Janet Roach) the 1985 adaptation of his 1982 quick-paced mobster family novel, "Prizzi's Honor," but he received an Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay. His work was often darkly comic, but often not comic at all, delving into the inner recesses of evil minds, tackling the notion of what people do when in the power seat.
